Following the Transport, Telecommunications and Energy Council, Radovan Žerjav, Slovenian Minister for Transport and President in office of the Council, and Jacques Barrot, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Transport, gave a joint press conference.
European Union Ministers have reached an agreement on the long delayed Galileo satellite navigation system project. Ministers supported the text of the proposal of the so-called Galileo Implementation Regulation, which represents the legal basis for the implementation of the budget and sets out a new management structure for the project. For Radovan Žerjav, who chaired the meeting, this is a clear signal that Europe remains committed to offer all European citizens and businesses high-quality satellite navigation services by 2013.
