One of the priorities of the Global Gateway is to invest in clean transport corridors. The session will debate the opportunities offered by transport corridors to facilitate sustainable, efficient, smart, resilient, fair, affordable, secure and safe mobility and trade within the Western Balkans, Eastern Neighbourhood and Africa, as well as between Europe and those partner regions. It will explore how corridors underpin the territorial organisation (rural and urban) through reliable networks and services that create jobs and support value chains that can benefit industries in both Europe and partner countries. The session will notably address the challenges of decarbonisation, digitalisation, climate-adaptation, obstacles to trade, financing quality infrastructure and the sustainability of maintenance and operations.
