 Northern Dimension Future Forum on Transport: Emerging trade routes between Europe and Asia is organized on 20 November 2018 at 09:00 - 14:00 at Thon Hotel EU, Rue de la Loi 75, 1040 Brussels.


Programme and registration to the event are available via www.eap-events.eu/ndff-transport


The Forum brings together European decision-makers, top experts and leading transport companies to discuss the future developments in land and Arctic maritime connections between Europe and Asia.


China’s “One Belt, One Road” initiative, Russia led Eurasian Economic Union and the European Union’s visions on Euro-Asian connectivity all share an interest to develop efficient and interoperable trade routes between Europe and Asia. Creating synergies between these large-scale initiatives is essential in order to ensure sustainable development of connectivity benefiting all parties. Southern maritime connections are the main trade route between Europe and Asia, but recently, utilization of railway connections has been on the rise despite a variety of bottlenecks still prevailing. At the same time, the global warming and rising economic activity in the Arctic are resulting to growing shipping in the Arctic waters even on a year-round basis. Enhancing the competitiveness of these trade routes in an economically viable and environmentally sustainable manner is essential.


The Forum highlights recent research, policies and business initiatives in Northern Europe focusing on Euro-Asian railway connections and the Arctic maritime connections. The event features two knowledge arenas consisting of expert interventions followed by decision-maker comments and a moderated discussion.


Participants will include representatives of national governments, EU institutions, European Parliament, intergovernmental organizations, international financial institutions as well as business, academia and civil society.


The event is organized by the Northern Dimension Institute led by the Aalto University in Finland, and supported by the European Commission and the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland.


The Northern Dimension is a joint policy of four equal partners: the European Union, Russian Federation, Norway and Iceland aiming at supporting stability, well-being and sustainable development in the region by means of practical cooperation. The Northern Dimension Future Forums focus on issues, trends and challenges that will shape the future developments in the jointly selected priority topics and they serve as knowledge exchange and brainstorming platforms connecting researchers, academic experts, NGOs, business and policy-makers.
