Clean transport to play a critical role in battle to save the European Union

September 15, 2016

European Commission president Jean Claude-Juncker has urged member states to ‘get to work’ on an ambitious policy programme to tackle an ‘existential crisis’ in the group of nations. In a forty-minute speech, Juncker warned that member states had to set their differences aside in the face of numerous problems and focus instead on the benefits of working together to solve them. This included a series of policies designed to tackle some of the most challenging issues facing the union, such as immigration and terrorism, but also policies designed to tie the union together and show the benefits of membership, including an integrated transport strategy.
