Two and a half years after the publication of their Action Plan on how to make the best use of innovative financial schemes for European transport infrastructure projects, Prof. Kurt Bodewig and Prof. Carlo Secchi presented today a report to the European Parliament in which they reflect on the progress made so far.
In their report, both authors acknowledge that a number of things have moved forward following their recommendations, especially with regard to the successful launch of the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI). At the same time, there are still opportunities to further mobilise finances, improve the quality of projects and improve and streamline the regulatory environment. All this to the benefit of transport infrastructure projects in order to move passengers and merchandises swiftly and efficiently within territories and across borders.
