Julio Arturo Briones Molina

Position: Technical Advisor
Location: Chile, Santiago

My academic background is in Industrial Civil Engineering, complemented by an MSc in Transport Economics from the Catholic University of Chile and an MPA from the London School of Economics. After working in a consulting firm and a government agency in transport planning and economic regulation, I joined the Chilean Ministry of Transport first as a minister advisor and later as a Chief Financial and Regulation Officer of Transantiago. During this period, I prepared public transport subsidies and metropolitan transport governance bills, assisted the minister during the legislative process, and renegotiated transport operator contracts. Later, I advised companies and international organizations about the economic appraisal of electric bus projects, public transport reforms, and sustainable mobility planning in Latin American and Asian countries.

Since 2011 I have taught Transport Policy at the Catholic University of Chile. Since July 2022, I have been part of the GIZ as a technical advisor in Euroclima+ and Moving Chile projects. I am enthusiastic about working in international cooperation and contributing to making sustainable mobility projects a reality in different countries.
