November Update: Transport

27 October 2017

A fast-moving time in the Brussels year, November opens with a Green Week and public holidays before getting down to business with serious policy discussion.

The Estonian Presidency continues to make its mark with a range of events and initiatives, but leaders are already looking ahead to next year following the publication of the 2018 European Commission Work Programme.

Meanwhile, the Brexit negotiations will enter a more pressured phase as the UK seeks to overcome the impasse that  threatens to damage domestic economic prospects.

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