Given the increasing risk that the United Kingdom may leave the European Union on 30 March this year without a deal (a “no-deal” scenario), the European Commission has today adopted a proposal to help mitigate the significant impact that such a scenario would have on rail transport and connectivity between the EU and the UK.
The EU is stimulating the market for zero- and low-emission vehicles by encouraging their use in public procurement. On 11 February, the Romanian presidency reached a provisional agreement with the European Parliament on a reform which will increase market certainty and help cut down overall transport emissions. The new rules will also strengthen the competitiveness of European industry in the expanding global markets for these new technologies. The agreement will now be submitted for confirmation by member states in the Council.
