Today and tomorrow Ministers from 22 Member States and over 2,800 transport experts and CEOs will join the 2016 edition of the high-level transport conference “TEN-T Days” in Rotterdam. This edition will cover the development, implementation and financing of the Trans-European Transport Network, with a particular focus on the Commission’s Investment Plan for Europe. The Commission will be represented by Vice-President for Energy Union Maroš Šefčovič, Vice-President Jyrki Katainen, responsible for Jobs, Growth, Investment and Competitiveness, Commissioner for Neighbourhood Policy Johannes Hahn and Commissioner for Transport Violeta Bulc.Commissioner Bulc said, “Only days after we allocated €6.7 billion to priority projects as part of the Connecting Europe Facility, the TEN-T Days offer another opportunity to mobilise funding for transport investments. Implementing the Trans-European Transport is not only about building new infrastructure, it also serves our broader objectives such as the decarbonisation and digitalisation of transport.” More information is available in a press release, in a factsheet on transport investment and on EbS.
