The objectives, priorities, and implementation tools of the EU transport policy are determined by the guidelines for the development of the TEN-T. The changed geopolitical situation has further highlighted the importance of the connections between Finland and Europe. At the same time, solid transport connections, such as the proposed one-hour rail link between Helsinki and Turku, improve labor mobility and reinforce economic growth. The panel discussion will focus on the objectives of the EU transport policy as well as the available options to utilize those objectives in promoting Finnish transport investments.
How can railway projects reinforce our connection with Europe? The topic will be discussed by Turku One Hour Train Ltd CEO Pekka Ottavainen, Minister of Finance Annika Saarikko, and MEP Alviina Alametsä. The discussion will be moderated by Esa Suominen from Rud Pedersen.
