"Taking stock of EU transport policy -
the 2011 White Paper: achievements and challenges"

Thursday 12 November 2015 (all-day event)
Conference Centre Albert Borschette (room 0D)
Rue Froissart 36
1040 Brussels


The European Commission is organising an event in order to inform stakeholders about the outcome of the dedicated public consultation on the 2011 White Paper on Transport 'Roadmap to a Single European Transport Area' and the respective positions elaborated by other EU institutions. The White Paper sets out an action plan and a vision on transport policy until 2050. The Commission intends to report on its implementation by the end of 2015. 

The vision, targets and objectives of the 2011 White Paper are still valid and topical. At the same time, the priorities of the new Commission warrant a deeper reflection on the orientations of EU transport policy, in order to ensure their compatibility and complementarity notably with the general agenda for growth, jobs and sustainability, the energy union action plan and the digital agenda. Moreover, transport policy initiatives must be focused around the needs of the people.

Main topics discussed

The event will be an opportunity for the European Commission to present the state of play and outlook on the Transport White Paper and to engage in an open dialogue with policy-makers from all institutions and Member States as well as stakeholders on the most important issues resulting from the input received from the other EU institutions and transport stakeholders in general.

Target audience

The event will bring together high-level representatives from the European institutions and international organisations, Member States' representatives and representatives of EU-level transport stakeholder federations, NGOs, user associations, academia etc.
