Croatian’s accession into the EU and perspectives in transport sector: technical meeting held in Trieste at the CEI premises on 19th July 2013

Investment perspectives in railway connections with Slovenia and Croatia, transport development, TEN-T network extension on Croatia were issues discussed during technical meeting that was held on 19th July in Trieste at the premises of the Central European Initiative (CEI).

The meeting was attended by representatives from Italian Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport, Croatian Ministry of Maritime Affairs, Transport and Infrastructure, Slovenian Ministry of Infrastructure and Spatial Planning, and by representatives from Unioncamere Veneto, Friuli Venezia Giulia Region, Prometni Institut Ljubljana, Croatian Pro-rail Alliance and University of Trieste.

Discussion was mainly about the outcomes of the Agreement on Connecting Europe Facility (CEF), the integrated instrument for investments dedicated to EU’s priority infrastructure in transport sector, which reveals a determinate revival to the EAST WEST Corridor now renamed “Mediterraneo” and reaches Croatia in the new EU programming period.

Croatian Ministry of Transport pointed out the good financial envelope that will be available in the next 7 years and priorities that Croatia intends to develop, mainly in railway sub-sector especially in relation to the axis towards Hungary and accessibility to Port of Rijeka. Italian Ministry of Transport as a priority indicated the completion of studies and works ongoing under the previous EU programming, with particular attention to the fast completion of project Trieste – Divača, which now becomes the hub for the trade also with Croatia and not only with Slovenia. Slovenian Ministry of Transport emphasized again their priority Koper – Divača and cross-border section Slovenia – Hungary in order to guaranty continuity of Corridor “Mediterraneo”.  

CEI underlined the necessity of immediate promotion of bottle-necks on existent network and activation of new railway services towards Sežana, Divača and Rijeka. Meeting was the first but very important step towards having an effective coordination of rather small investments that railway agencies intend to implement on the network. Though, thanks to the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region’sintervention, pre-conditions for joint activation of railway and maritime services already exist, so Italian, Slovenian and Croatian coast marginality reduces.
