  • Joint Position Paper on the Midterm Review of the EU Budget - Improve Connecting Europe Facility Budget!

    30 European transport associations call on the European Parliament and the Council to approve the Commission proposal for the review of the Multi-Annual Financial Framework. The proposal foresees an increase of EUR 1.4 billion for the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) budget. The current proposal would contribute to enhancing the role of transport as an enabler of economic growth and job creation, which at the moment employs directly and indirectly 20 million people (10% of total EU employment).

  • More EU Budget for Transport

    Polis joined forces in April 2016 with many associations in the transport sector calling on more investment on CEF Transport grants.

    This paper calls for the necessary means to make the TEN-T network, a smart and well thought transport infrastructure plan for Europe, a reality. On its own it will create 10 million additional jobs by 2030.

    We want to be able to exploit at the fullest the synergies between transport, energy and digitalisation to keep our continent at the forefront of the 21th century. For this reason, the transport sector urges the EU institutions to increase the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) budget in the upcoming review of the Multi-Annual Financial Framework.
