MPE holds a successful Dinner Debate on the Complementarities of Rail and Road

On 9th November 2010, Mobility for Prosperity in Europe (MPE) organised a well-timed and remarkable Dinner Debate in the European Parliament on the Complementarities of Rail and Road in the carriage of freight.

As transport remains of vital importance to a competitive Europe, it is clear that the EU must develop a fully integrated transport system that will meet users’ needs in 2020 and beyond. The intense discussions on the forthcoming White Paper on the Future of Transport show that Europe is indeed moving towards a more integrated European Transport System. Intermodality and comodality are the buzz words of the moment. In this context, MPE organised a Dinner Debate in the European Parliament Members’ Restaurant attracting around 70 participants. These included Members of the European Parliament (MEPs), top officials from the European Commission, representatives of the Council and Member States, as well as industry experts, NGOs, media journalists and other key stakeholders.
