February Update: Transport

30 January 2018

After opening with a Green Week, February promises to be a busy month in EU policymaking.

With the Bulgarian Presidency now in full swing, one of its key interests will be under discussion as the Commission publishes a strategy on the accession of Serbia and Montenegro to the EU.

Elsewhere, the Brexit negotiations look likely to continue making headlines as UK domestic tensions threaten the position of Prime Minister Theresa May.

Here, Darius Mikulėnas, DeHavilland EU's Policy Analyst for Transport, gives you the lowdown on what to watch out for this February.

What's on the agenda this month

by Darius Mikulėnas, EU Policy Analyst

This February, European leaders will be focusing on preparations to finalise ongoing legislation.
Final touches are set to be made to the proposal on revision of EASA basic regulation, with only a vote in the Plenary and adoption in the Council keeping it from being adopted.
The TRAN Committee is also expected to present its draft Report on the common rules for the operation of air services in the Community. It is also expected to vote on the own-initiative report on a European Strategy on Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems.
A draft report on Europe on the Move: an agenda for the future of mobility in the EU is also expected, while TRAN receives presentations from the Commission on the European Court of Auditors’ Special Report, European Rail Traffic Management System, and on Traffic Management System – the way forward.
