EU urges B&H to adopt the State-level Transport Policy

BiH i EU

Commenting on the B&H Framework Transport policy, currently in Parliamentary procedure, EUD/EUSR Spokesperson Andy McGuffie said that the adoption of the State-level policy is essential to advancing the drafting and implementation of the B&H Transport Strategy and the strategic documents and action plans pertaining to all Transport sub-sectors – road, railways, inter-modal and maritime transport.

The EU has allocated 1 million EUR from IPA funds for drafting of the Transport Strategy and for drafting of strategies and action plans for all sub-sectors on all levels. Furthermore, the Commission has stated its intent to priorities investments in B&H transport infrastructure under IPA II (2014-2020) funds. However all assistance is conditional on having the State-level Transport Policy in place, said McGuffie in a press statement.

He added that the EU urges the B&H Parliament to take the necessary steps to have the policy adopted as a matter of urgency, as failure to do so would be detrimental to possible future investments in the transport sector through IPA II.
