The METR region - the Middle East, Europe, Turkey and Russia - offers a prime example of the importance of overcoming “mobile inequality” in the modern world as quickly as possible.

IGOR IVANOV

President, Russian International Affairs Council, Former Foreign Minister of the Russian Federation

In the European Union, the nine priority corridors of the TEN-T network are creating for Europe’s passengers a kind of Continental Metro, a “Euro Metro”, with European cities as stations. This is allowing a new relationship system for trade, knowledge and circulation of people and ideas.

PIERO FASSINO

Mayor of Turin, President, National Association of Italian Municipalities

Mobility has many characteristics, but from my point of view, its transport and socioeconomic components are the most important in this palette. We can constantly see their interconnection in our daily lives. One person spends 10 minutes to get to work, while another needs a couple of hours. In this case, the person who spends a lot of time commuting is under constant stress due to lack of sleep, fatigue, the threat of showing up late to work and getting sacked. Often it is difficult to find a better-paid and promising job because of low transport mobility.

ERNEST SULTANOV

Coordinator, MIR Initiative, Head of External Affairs and International Development, High-Speed Rail Lines JSC (Russian Railways JSC)

Though infrastructure network design is well-developed today, certain limits to the TEN-T project have been discovered in the last few years. And although TEN-T is fundamental for Europe’s “general development plan”, the funds allocated for this project aren’t enough to create the large-scale infrastructure that Europe needs to eliminate physical and technical hindrances to cross-border freight traffic.

MAURO MORETTI

CEO, Finmeccanica S.p.A.

The efficient projection of traffic volumes is the cornerstone of any transport infrastructure project. As experience shows, it is especially important to use projection models optimal for each type of transportation. Projections are based on external parameters, such as electricity price dynamics and changing security regulations, and transportation industry parameters, such as changing tariffs.
