Transport funding: €11.9 billion for network investments announced by Commission

Jennifer Baker is joined by Pia Ahrenkilde Hansen, spokeswoman of the European Commission, to discuss European Union funding for big transport investments, due to be announced on September 11.

This funding for investments in transport is part of the Connecting Europe Facility. Ahrenkilde Hansen explains that the new budgetary framework triples the amount of funding that is available for sustainable transport networks. Member states will receive 11.9 billion in support to improve their national transport systems and to create a genuine European transport network. Such a network would contribute to boosting economic growth and to significantly reducing emissions.
