10:00:42 Soundbite by Siim Kallas (in ENGLISH): This is the EU's added value. If we can link regions, countries, East and West, then this can only drive competitiveness for everyone in Europe to the benefit of citizens and business. Transport should be seen as investment in our future growth. It does not, and should not, stop at borders. And that is what European transport policy is all about. I now proudly present to you the map of the new network corridors that will shape Europe's future transport network. 00:00:36

10:01:42 Soundbite by Siim Kallas (in ENGLISH): Apart from being held in my home city, this year's TEN-T Days is important for another reason. This is a pivotal moment for European transport. We can start to map out its future for the next few decades. Concretely, not just in theory. As you know, this is thanks to the agreements on the new TEN-T regulation and the Connecting Europe Facility. These new regulations will change Europe's approach to transport infrastructure. In many ways, they open the door to the future of European transport. 00:00:43
