From strategies to investments

The successfully initiated cooperation between TransBaltic and the NDPTL resulted in the NDPTL's invitation to host TransBaltic's 4th Umbrella meeting at their premises. The same premises also house the European and Nordic Investments Banks (EIB/NIB), which gave the excellent opportunity to discuss how transport projects can be made bankable. Representatives from the two institutions provided the 9 attending transport projects with useful insights on how they work, their lending criteria and application processes. The general idea is that their lending activities have to follow EU objectives and facilitates for increased competitiveness, supports sustainable growth and less environmental impact. While NIB mainly has been focusing on the energy sector they have now adopted a lending strategy for transport, logistics and communications showing their increased acknowledgement and interested of this sector.

Next umbrella meeting will be hosted by Bothnian Green Logistics Corridor in Umeå 29 May, for which the allied transport projects are expected to have prepared input to the TransBaltic Macroregional Transport Action Plan.
