ETSC’s priorities for the Portuguese presidency of the EU

  • January 1, 2021

Portugal took over the EU Presidency on 1 January 2021 as the EU continues to grapple with the Covid-19 crisis, which has brought additional challenges for transport and mobility policies.  In a new briefing, ETSC has outlined its recommendations on the key EU road safety policy dossiers to be steered by the Portuguese Presidency over the next six months.

The issues covered include the new sustainable and smart mobility strategy, EU-Africa cooperation on road safety, the urban mobility package, opportunities for transport safety funding in the EU budget, vehicle safety (implementation of new EU vehicle standards) and new developments in assisted and automated driving.
