The Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport is the national authority competent for planning and development of transport (in particular way in the maritime sector) and issues related to Integrated Maritime Policy.
The Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport works actively on planning and development of transport, in particular in the maritime sectors and issues related to Integrate Maritime Policy. It has been involved in a number of EU projects, such as: PORTUS - (Perspectives On inter-Regional Transport Unitary System) within the ADRIATIC NEW NEIGHBOURHOOD PROGRAMME, funded by the INTERREG funds for Community Countries, CARDS and PHARE for Balkan Countries, with a total budget of Euro 1.200.000; CROSS-5 - mainly financed by the European Regional Development Fund of the INTERREG IIIA ITALY-SLOVENIA CBC programme. The project includes a strategic study on the main track of the Pan-European Corridor V and a feasibility study for the implementation of the Corridor V railway missing link between Trieste (Italy) and Divaca(Slovenia). Project budget amounts to 2.199.500 euro.
As associate, the Ministry will give its contribution and institutional support to the cross-border Board activities for the definition of a sustainable passenger strategy, capitalising the experience and the project results. Its participation can generate a leverage effect able to converge other resources to pursue the project objectives. The Ministry also aims at promoting maritime passenger’s traffics in the Adriatic area ensuring a diffusion and a sustainability of project results.
