The CPMR has replied to an online consultation launched by the European Commission, preparing the mid-term evaluation of its Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) programme.

The CPMR outlined the key principles it supports on transport issues. Beyond this mid-term evaluation, and based on the same arguments, the CPMR will produce a Policy Position on CEF post-2020.

This Policy Position will be available for debate at the CPMR’’s first Political Bureau meeting of the year, on 10 March in Malta. It will also form the basis of future CPMR discussions.

The CEF for Transport is the funding instrument to realise European transport infrastructure policy. It aims to supporting investments in building new transport infrastructure in Europe, or rehabilitating and upgrading existing ones.
