The ability for people and goods to move efficiently and safely across the EU’s single market and around the world is a great yet inescapable challenge.
Cutting-edge know-how, adequate investments and appropriate policies are key in tackling this issue.
With a focus on infrastructure and traffic management, the aim of this dinner debate was to provide a better understanding of possible technological solutions for safer and more efficient systems, including goods distribution and cross-border traffic information systems.
