Information on Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) Investment Action Plan

On 15 January, the European Commission published Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) Investment Action Plan that identifies priority projects for EaP countries. Together, these projects amount to an investment of almost €12.8 billion up to 2030 and foresee a total of 48000 kilometres of road and rail, 6 ports, and 11 logistics centres. 

Completing the TEN-T network is defined as one of the 20 deliverables for 2020.
 
The Investment Action Plan identifies 18 priority transport investment projects for Georgia estimated at €3.4 billion. Of these 18 projects, two are already underway and their total investment value is €1.3 billion. Two additional projects valued at €32 million will be completed by 2020, and another 10 valued at € 2.02 billion are due for completion for 2030.
 
Deepening physical integration with the EU in the areas of energy, transport and communications is of paramount importance in the Georgia-EU relations. This direction was discussed during the first high-level dialogue between the Government of Georgia and the European Commission co-chaired by the Prime Minister of Georgia, Mamuka Bakhtadze and  the President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, held in Brussels, on 21 November 2018.
