Top UK transport organisations gathered in Brussels to prepare for Brexit
Brussels, 21 November 2018: UK Transport in Europe (UKTiE), the association of UK transport companies and organisations, had it’s 8th Annual Forum ‘Looking beyond Brexit: How to influence European transport legislation as a third country’ on Tuesday 20 November in the European Parliament, hosted, as every year, by our patron MEP Jacqueline Foster.
‘This year’s event exceeded our expectations, being the largest gathering of UK and EU officials and experts in the field of transport that had a pragmatic discussion about the UK’s role as a third country.’ said Mark Watts, UKTiE coordinator.
Among the high level speakers at the event were representatives of the Permanent Representation of the UK to the EU, the Mission of Switzerland to the EU, the UK Department for Exiting the EU, the Department for Transport, the European Free Trade Association, the Japanese Business Council in Europe and MEPs. With only months until the Article 50 process deadline, the three sessions of the event discussed and learned from other third country models and debated how leading UK transport businesses and organisations should work together to ensure the UK’s transport interests continue to be protected and promoted in EU legislation.
The UKTiE Forum is a unique platform facilitating dialogue between UK transport organisations and EU officials, politicians and stakeholders. UKTiE is a member-driven association that makes the most of its members’ expertise focusing on common interests and priorities, representing companies from across all the transport modes and different areas of expertise, striving to build an effective and sustainable transport network.
