A conference of the Baltic Assembly and the Baltic Council of Ministers on transport connections and infrastructure, where the joint projects of the Baltic States and their possibilities for developing cooperation are discussed, is held today in the Conference Hall of the Riigikogu, the Parliament of Estonia.

President of the Baltic Assembly Aadu Must emphasised that the Baltic States needed strong transport and infrastructure connections in order to promote economy, create new jobs, and improve the security and stability of the region. “Members of the Baltic Assembly believe that joint transport and infrastructure projects, like Rail Baltic, are a gate to Europe. If we want these projects to be successful, we have to overcome physical and technological barriers, and work together to join the missing links,” Head of the Estonian Delegation to the Baltic Assembly and Chairman of the Cultural Affairs Committee of the Riigikogu Must said.

The development of maritime transport in the Baltic Sea Region, cross-border infrastructure and mobility projects, and intelligent transport systems are also discussed at the conference.

The conference was opened by President of the Baltic Assembly Aadu Must and Minister of Economic Affairs and Infrastructure Kadri Simson. The panel on Rail Baltic is chaired by Deputy Chairman of the Economic Affairs Committee of the Riigikogu Toomas Kivimägi.
