Extracts from the press conference by Siim Kallas on the adoption by the EC of proposals for a 4th Railway Package

0 views

On 30 January 2013, Siim Kallas, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Transport, held a press conference on the proposals adopted by the Commission for a Fourth Railway Package. The European Commission announced a comprehensive package of measures to deliver better quality and more choice in railway services in Europe. Rail is a vital part of EU transport, with a key role in addressing rising traffic demand, congestion, fuel security and decarbonisation. But many European rail markets are currently facing stagnation or decline. Faced with this reality, the Commission is proposing far reaching measures to encourage more innovation in EU railways by opening EU domestic passenger markets to competition, as well as substantial accompanying technical and structural reforms.
