Taking place shortly before the European elections in May, this panel event will focus on what has been achieved in terms of European road transport policy over the past 5 years and will also look ahead at the next term of the European Commission and Parliament. Discussions are expected to pick up on EU legislative developments in the fields of road safety, environmental affairs, connectivity and automated mobility.
