Memorandum to the Swedish Presidency

December 27, 2000

In the first half of the year 2001 the EU agenda offers the Swedish Presidency a unique opportunity to redirect EU transport policy into line with other EU policy areas.

In particular the revision of the programme implementing the Common Transport Policy, the review of the Trans-European Transport Networks (TEN-T) guidelines, and ongoing efforts to make transport pricing fairer and more efficient. The end of the Swedish presidency will also be the first occasion Heads of Government and State to review the progress achieved in integrating environmental considerations into sectoral policies, including transport.
