CER believes the resources allocated to rail transport in the post-2020 Multiannual Financial Framework will play a key role in ensuring that the transport system as a whole efficiently supports the EU’s economic growth. Considerable financial resources are still required to complete the TEN-T rail network as well as to modernise and digitalise rail infrastructure in Europe for the benefit of Europe’s citizens. The European Commission estimates that €430 billion is needed in rail investment alone by 2030. While CER recognises that the EU budget is likely to shrink post-Brexit, the wider benefits from transport should not be forgotten. 

On Wednesday 31 January 2018, starting at 18:30, CER will host a roundtable on the future of transport financing in the context of the discussions on the next Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF).

Organised in cooperation with the Bulgarian Presidency of the Council of the EU, this Brussels event will feature keynote speeches from Velik Zanchev, Deputy Minister for Transport of the Bulgarian Government, and Violeta Bulc, European Commissioner for Transport, followed by a high-level panel debate between European Commission, European Parliament and rail sector representatives.
