The discussion was based on the state of play on EU transport policy and the challenges and priorities for the future of EU transport and mobility. This conference has provided input to the next Commission’s priorities in the transport and mobility field. 

The conference comprised three sessions, each offering different perspectives on shaping the next roadmap for the transport sector:

  • Session 1: Filling the gaps – delivering e deeper, more competitive and better connected Union
  • Session 2: An inclusive twin transition in the field of transport – mission possible
  • Session 3: Towards a wider Europe – revisiting our transport agenda in a changed geopolitical context

Throughout these sessions, speakers and attendees engaged in discussions covering various themes, including:

  • EU enlargement
  • Weaponization
  • Competitiveness
  • Resilience
  • How connectivity can be instrumental to geopolitics
  • Whether it will be for EU companies to remain competitive in spite of additional costs resulting from the implementation of climate related legislation.

DG MOVE reiterated its commitment to taking these insights into account, underscoring the Commission's responsiveness to the feedback received from stakeholders.
