Western Balkans Connectivity

4 161 views

The European Commission announced a new package of measures which will boost connectivity within the Western Balkans region and with the EU, notably through the Western Balkans Investment Framework. The EU will provide grants for additional 11 high-priority transport projects (road, rail, ports) worth €190 million. This investment can leverage up to €1 billion in loans from international financing institutions. In order to develop the new Digital Agenda for the Western Balkans, the EU has earmarked €30 million for investments in broadband rollouts across the region. Partners agreed to extend the region's arrangements to reduce roaming costs to all six partners, while at the same time the EU will develop a roadmap to lower the cost of roaming between the Western Balkans and the EU.

Moreover, the EU will support the region's energy transition through promoting renewable energy sources, including a sustainable use of hydropower.
