Commission’s Perspective

Ms Florentine Hopmeier, Jyrki Katainen Cabinet, Responsible for Investment Plan for Europe


The members of the European Logistics Platform are delighted to invite you to an interactive forum in cross-border infrastructure needs of logistics. The TEN-T network is a smart and well thought infrastructure plan for Europe, and its completion is important for the competitiveness of the EU. More investments are needed to make transport better, greener, cleaner and more connected in an increasingly digital world. The Connecting Europe Facility is an effective mechanism so far but there has been oversubscription and there is a risk of further reducing the instrument because of insufficient EU budget. The event will hear on future investment needs as these will be discussed later this month in the Connecting Europe Conference taking place in Talinn. Current problems on European corridors disadvantaging and harming rail freight will also be discussed.


Members from across the European Parliament's committees and political groups, the European Commission and the Permanent Representations are invited to discuss what can be done to ensure the right projects are being proposed which serve the logistics interests in Europe.


We are looking forward to a fruitful discussion with you!
