“The Forum presents an opportunity to reflect on the priorities for the European rail network development in light of the EU’s financial perspectives for 2021-2027 and the European Green Deal. Furthermore, Rail Baltica project implementers will present the current project status and maturity as well as its added value for Europe,” said a release from RB Rail, the joint venture charged with implementing the 6-billion-euro project.
Hosted by Sanita Pavļuta-Deslandes, Permanent Representative of the Republic of Latvia to the European Union, the Forum brings together key European policy makers and transport experts.
“In this decisive time, when the European Union is planning its joint budget for the upcoming years, we are keen to present how Rail Baltica is progressing and how it will contribute to Europe’s mobility and environmental policy goals,” said Agnis Driksna, RB Rail AS chairperson of the Management Board.
“With Rail Baltica Global Project firmly in the design phase and large-scale construction works approaching, we are eager to share with our European partners our next steps and outline necessary preconditions to deliver this complex project successfully,” said Driksna.
