Maritime and Inland Waterways Action Plan
Waterborne transport has clear benefits in terms of environmental impact, reduced congestion, lower costs and increased efficiency of transport operations. The investments in
waterborne transport in the Western Balkans so far have been significantly lower compared to investments in other modes of transport.
We need to make waterborne transport in the Western Balkans reliable, competitive and
sustainable, by supporting the deployment and implementation of digital solutions and
green concepts in ports.
The promotion of multimodal transport solutions and modal shift, through targeted policies, including investment in inland waterways and maritime ports will give Regional Partners possibilities for new development and growth. On the path to green recovery of the
Western Balkans , water is the way to go.
