The vleva breakfast session on 15 September 2017 will focus on the mobility package "Europe on the Move".
With “Europe on the Move”, the European Commission launched a wide range of initiatives to make traffic safer, promote fairer billing, reduce CO2 emissions, air pollution and congestion, reduce the administrative burden for businesses, combat undeclared work and ensure decent working conditions and rest periods. This is the first of three waves - with various proposals - that culminates in a long-term strategy of the European Commission. With this, the Commission wants to tackle mobility challenges and achieve smart, fair and competitive mobility by 2025.
The initiatives covered by this package will be presented at our breakfast session "Europe on the Move: the mobility package" on Friday 15 September 2017. The Department of Mobility and Public Works and vleva will be happy to welcome you from 9 am with coffee and breakfast.
9.00-10.00: Breakfast
10.00-10.30: Eddy Liégeois, Head of Road Transport at the Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport of the European Commission (DG MOVE) will clarify the mobility package with an English presentation. There will be a possibility to ask questions.
After a short break, Tijl Dendal of the Ministry of Mobility and Public Works of the Flemish government will focus on the toll fee proposals from the package and its impact on Flanders with a Dutch presentation.
