The Baltic prime ministers are committed to the fast advancement of Rail Baltica

At an official meeting of the Baltic Prime Ministers’ Council on December 6 2019 in Riga, the Baltic prime ministers agreed that they would regularly monitor the progress of the Rail Baltica project so that it could be vigorously developed and the international railway would assuredly be completed within the next long-term budget of the European Union. “At today’s meeting, we were able to confirm along with representatives of the European Commission and RB Rail AS that Rail Baltica will remain a very important project for all of us and something we will overcome disagreements and concerns for,” said Prime Minister Jüri Ratas.

Prime Minister Ratas added that it is our common desire to move forward and start the construction as quickly as possible. Therefore, the transport ministers of the three countries were tasked with improving joint management and building confidence to complete the project successfully. The ministers will be giving regular updates of the project’s developments to the prime ministers of three Baltic countries. Prime Minister Ratas was very pleased to see Poland’s great interest in Rail Baltica and he believes that Finland will also decide to participate in the project in the future.
