Policy implications of the mobility transformation, EU Permanent Representation of Finland
Mervi Kaikkonen, Transport Counsellor at Permanent Representation of Finland to the EU, talks about the policy implications of the mobility transformation from the perspective of the Finnish EU Presidency.
Ms Kaikkonen states that “the EU has a good opportunity to be a global leader in sustainable and innovative mobility solutions. However, quickly developing technologies and business models cannot thrive with slow, inflexible rules and legislators.” That’s why she argues that EU Regulations need to be technologically neutral: “It is not regulators’ task to choose one technology over the other.”
This speech was given at the ‘Leading the mobility transformation: The future of the EU auto industry’ Summit organised by ACEA on 4 September 2019.
