REGIONAL RAIL CONNECTIVITY: PA1b AND UN ECE JOINT WORKSHOP
3-4 October 2019: Sustainable transport is a basic element for the economic and social development of any country. Due to globalization of the economy, countries are more and more depending on an efficient transport system to ensure their development. The dynamics of globalization have indeed brought trade, mobility and sustainable transport into the forefront of national and regional development strategies. This goes hand in hand with international efforts aimed at better connectivity and seamless mobility and reducing the costs and the complexity of moving goods/passengers.
The aim of the Workshop was to increase awareness on importance of better Danube region rail connectivity and to strengthen cooperation between the regional transport stakeholders (ministries, railways, terminal operators, hauliers) to create common, reliable and sustainable rail services on the international market. The workshop allowed attendees to link regional rail connectivity with national transport policies and to discuss wider prospective of the region to attract international transport flows. A key aspect of the workshop was the exchange of information and experiences of participants in relation to rail connectivity in the Danube region.
