CER General Assembly endorses new set of policy priorities

On 21 February, the Community of European Railway and Infrastructure Companies (CER) held its bi-annual General Assembly in Brussels. On the agenda was the association’s policy agenda for the years 2019-2024, which was unanimously endorsed by the participating CEO’s. The rail sector plays an important role in the EU economy, with 2.3 million EU citizens directly and indirectly employed and a Gross Value Added (GVA) of 149 billion euros. That’s also why CER decided to inaugurate the upcoming legislature with a clear policy agenda, containing both sectoral self-commitments as well as requests for ever better accompanying policies.
