Successful meeting with stakeholders in Riga to discuss transnational transport planning

24 June, 2013

As a part of the project a so called Advisory Group has been constituted in order to validate and discuss project findings. The Advisory Group is an informal network consisting of public and private stakeholders interested in optimising transport planning and development in the Baltic Sea Region.

The main questions discussed during this event revolved around how to secure durability and consistency of strategic transport development processes in the Baltic Sea area and whether centralised transport and infrastructure planning is the only way to move forward to increase the overall accessibility of the region.

See the keynote presentation of the event below.
