Minister Žerjav: Slovenian Presidency making every effort to help consolidate and round off the single road transport market

This was the point emphasised by Slovenian Transport Minister Radovan Žerjav in his address at today’s plenary session of the European Parliament in Strasbourg.

The items on the agenda of today’s plenary session of the European Parliament included three proposals for road transport Regulations, namely on access to the international road haulage market, the conditions to be complied with to pursue the occupation of road transport operator, and access to the international market for coach and bus services, on which the MEPs will vote tomorrow.

At the EU Transport, Telecommunications and Energy Council meeting held on 7 April 2008 in Luxembourg, the Transport Ministers of the EU Member States in principle supported the elements on cabotage and the national electronic register prepared by the Slovenian Presidency and thus enabled the discussions on the three Regulations on road transport in the EU to proceed.

As the Slovenian Transport Minister pointed out today in his address to the Members of the European Parliament, “The Slovenian Presidency is making every effort to help consolidate and round off the single market.” He went on to say, “I believe that the rapidly growing road transportation sector represents one of the foundations of the single market and free movement of goods and persons and that Community legislation needs to be modernised so as to improve efficiency, provide better control and fair competition.” Mr Žerjav also stressed that the Slovenian Presidency fully supported the objectives set forth in the proposals for all three Regulations.
