ESPO publishes its position on the Mid-term Evaluation of CEF

In November 2016, the Commission invited stakeholders to contribute their views to the current Mid-term evaluation of the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) Programme. The European Sea Ports Organisation welcomes the opportunity to participate in the Mid-term Evaluation and would like to share some ideas that could help improve CEF, ESPO said in its press release.

ESPO would like to share the following ideas that could help improve CEF:
 More CEF Budget for Transport
 No Juncker Plan without CEF grants
 Better definition and implementation of the “EU added value”
 Improving the CEF budget’s long-term vision
 Improving the selection process
