Comments on the Commission’s Proposal for the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF)
ACEA very much supports the Commission’s intention to review the TENs Transport (TEN-T) policy and to fund key investments to improve Europe’s transport networks.
Indeed, the political, economic and social context has changed since the TEN-T policy was conceived in the 1990s for an EU of 15 Member States. Such evolution justifies a fundamental review of the policy rather than just a review of the priority projects.
However, ACEA wants to express several concerns regarding the assumptions that are behind the Commission’s proposal for a so called Connecting Europe Facility (CEF).
