Meeting of the Regional Steering Committee of the Transport Community, On 18 October, gathered policymakers from the Western Balkans and the European Union to discuss transport policies and related projects in South East Europe.

The Committee’s discussions kicked off with the endorsement of the Action Plans and the EU Acquis Progress Report for 2023, a document that outlines the progress achieved in implementing the Transport Community’s Five Action Plans, and provides insights into the transposition of relevant EU legislation, as reported by the regional partners.

The meeting also discussed the main conclusions from the 2023 report on the development of indicative TEN-T extensions of the comprehensive and core network in the Western Balkans.

Conducted by the Transport Community, the first ever analysis of the region’s rail markets, and its findings was presented to the members of the Regional Steering Committee. The agenda also included reports on technical assistance to the regional partners and the operationalisation of the Western Balkan Transport Observatory Database/Information System (TODIS).

The Committee addressed the state of play and the way forward for Montenegro and North Macedonia joining the Community Database on Accidents on the Roads in Europe (CARE), underlining the importance of road safety and accident data collection.

A concept note presented during the meeting introduced “112” service and e-Call, highlighting the necessity of emergency services and communication for the region’s transport systems and speed up emergency response times.

“The Macedonian presidency of the Transport Community got off to a great start with the meeting of the RSC, focusing on the progress made in transposing the EU Acquis in the Western Balkans. We are looking forward to interesting discussions during the Ministerial meeting, which will take place in Skopje in December 2023,” said Committee Chairperson and State Counsellor of the Ministry for Transport and Communications of North Macedonia, Ms Jasminka Kirkova.

Transport Community Director, Mr Matej Zakonjšek, commended the commitment of the Regional Partners and Observers to advance the positive agenda, both within the Transport Community’s work and in other regional initiatives, such as the Berlin Process.

The meeting then touched upon the state of cooperation with Observing Participants, fostering further collaboration efforts in the transport sector across the region.
