Transport is the most active sector of WBIF, comprising nearly 50% of the WBIF portfolio, with railways and roads being the largest sub-sectors. To overcome the legacy of fragmented networks, a considerable part of the region’s transport network still requires rehabilitation and upgrading. To facilitate regional trade and deliver sustainable economic growth, the implementation of EU technical standards and connectivity reform measures has become a priority for the region, together with the promotion of low pollution multimodal transport solutions. The benefits of signing the Transport Community Treaty in 2017, and the establishment of its Secretariat in Belgrade, are reflected in better planning of transport investments on the indicative extension of Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T).

Economic and Investment Plan for the Western Balkans

The EU will prioritise projects and programmes on the indicative extension of the TEN-T core network which are of strategic interest to the region and to the EU. Action will be taken to speed up construction of new transport infrastructure and the upgrading of existing infrastructure, with the objective of bringing the core transport network up to EU standards. To further spur regional cooperation and integration, connecting capitals in the region and with the EU will be an important priority, as well as promotion of multimodal transport solutions and modal shift, and reducing transport related pollution. 

The projects supported by WBIF follow the priorities of the Economic and Investment Plan, identified as Flagship 1 - Connecting East to West, Flagship 2 - Connecting North to South and Flagship 3 - Connecting the Coastal Areas.

CONNECTIVITY AGENDA

In 2015, the European Commission set aside up to €1 billion in grants until 2020, from the EU Pre-Accession Instrument, to support the connectivity agenda. In November 2020 at the summit in Sofia, the Western Balkan leaders welcomed the 2020 connectivity package with six projects in the areas of sustainable transport and clean energy. This package completes the delivery of the EU’s 2015 pledge, while at the same time constitutes the first step towards the implementation of the flagship projects of the Economic and Investment Plan.
