Connecting Europe Conference takes place in Tallinn
The Connecting Europe Conference took place in Tallinn, on 21-22 September, 2017. The event, organised by the European Commission and the Estonian Presidency of the Council, saw the Baltic Ports Organization promote a selection of BPO led projects, including „LNG in the Baltic Sea Ports” and „Go LNG”.
The conference focused on identifying policy actions and financing solutions to invest in the Transport sector with the perspective of the post-2020 EU financial framework. The TEN-T strategic framework and the long-term infrastructure plans are key enablers for achieving EU common objectives, including economic growth, efficient functioning of the EU single market as well as low-emission and smart mobility.
Many of the European ministers for transport present at the event also met during a meeting at the Tallinn Crative Hub. They confirmed that in order for major investments in infrastructure to be realised, it is vital to ensure the continuation of investments in the same manner as in the current period of 2014-2020.
