REAAA is the Road Engineering Association of Asia and Australasia. The association promotes the science and practice of road engineering and related professions in the Asia-Pacific region through the development of professional and commercial links within and between countries in the region.
REAAA was set up in June 1973 with a permanent secretariat in Malaysia. It has more than 1,400 members in about 24 countries and holds regular events including Heads of Road Authorities (HORA) meetings, Governing Council meetings, meetings of young professionals, business forums, international conferences, technical visits and study tours, trade exhibitions, seminars, forums and workshops.
Local REAAA Chapters have been set up in Australia, Brunei, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand and the Philippines.
“To be the most effective regional organization providing members with technology interchange and transfer and services to promote a better future in road-related engineering”.
“To meet the professional needs of its members and to foster understanding and cooperation both within and beyond this region”.
“To strongly believe in, and be committed to, professional knowledge sharing across international boundaries”.
The Road Engineering Association of the Philippines (REAP) was born out of the desire of a group of road engineering practitioners to establish an organization whose members, equipped with the technical know-how in the planning, design, construction and maintenance of roads and allied structures can communicate, collaborate and educate each other.
REAP was established in 1976 in preparation for the holding of the 2nd REAAA Conference in the Philippines in October 1978. It was established through the efforts of the then Department of Public Highways (DPH), with Secretary Baltazar Aquino elected as the first REAP President and other DPH Officials as officers. Secretary Aquino became the first Honorary Member of REAAA.
The Department of Public Works and Highways functions as the engineering and construction arm of the Philippine Government. It is tasked with the continuous development of its technology for the purpose of ensuring the safety of all infrastructure facilities and securing, for all public works and highways, the highest efficiency and quality in construction. DPWH is currently responsible for the planning, design, construction and maintenance of infrastructure, especially the national highways, flood control and water resources development systems, and other public works in accordance with national development objectives.
