България подкрепя инициативите на Европейската комисия за привличане на повече частни инвестиции в транспортния сектор, които да надграждат и допълват инвестициите с публични средства. Това каза министърът на транспорта, информационните технологии и съобщенията Христо Алексиев по време на транспортна конференция за инвестиции в транспорта. Министърът посочи, че тези инструменти могат да допълват традиционните финансови източници (европейски фондове, национален бюджет и др.), но не и да ги заменят напълно. По думите му включването на Европейската инвестиционна банка в този процес е от съществено значение, тъй като предварителната подготовка на всеки един проект е определяща за неговото реализиране и изпълнение.

„МТИТС има добро сътрудничество с ЕИБ в сферата на консултантската дейност, и се надявам занапред да осигурят още по-голяма подкрепа в подготовката на трансгранични проекти, с фокус върху железопътните коридори. По този начин ще се постигне устойчивост и мултиплициращ ефект на проектите в дългосрочен план“, каза министър Алексиев.

В рамките на втория ден от форума министър Христо Алексиев проведе двустранни срещи с еврокомисаря по транспорт Виолета Булц, както и с министрите на транспорта на Украйна и Черна гора.

По време на срещата с Виолета Булц, министър Алексиев представи инвестициите в транспорта, които ще бъдат реализирани с хоризонт до 2022 г. Той посочи, че трябва да има общи стандарти за проектите в рамките на Европейския съюз за да бъде постигната оперативна съвместимост на транспортните системи. Комисар Булц изрази позиция, че страните членки трябва да черпят опит и добри практики по между си, както и да си партнират в общите проекти. Христо Алексиев даде пример с проекта Бургас – Александруполис и заяви, че има много добро сътрудничество с гръцката страна и съвсем скоро ще бъдат предприети съвместни действия по този въпрос.

В рамките на среща с министъра на транспорта и морските въпроси на Черна гора Осман Нуркович беше обсъдено възобновяването на спогодба между двете държави в сферата на автомобилните превози. Последната спогодба е от 2011 г. и в момента се подготвя актуализиран вариант на документа, който предстои да бъде съгласуван от двете държави.

На среща с министъра на инфраструктурата на Украйна Володимир Омелян беше обсъден проекта за изграждането на автомагистрала между Украйна, Румъния, България и Гърция. Министър Омелян заяви, че украинската страна ще организира среща между държавите в обхвата на проекта и се надява да бъде постигнато съгласие за изграждането на магистралата. Министър Алексиев посочи, че България подкрепя този проект и ще се включи в предстоящите дискусии. Украинският министър сподели, че гръцкият му колега също е изразил подкрепа към инициативата и ще се включи в съвместна среща.

След края на конференцията министър Христо Алексиев, европейският комисар Виолета Булц и кметът на София Йорданка Фандъкова посетиха метростанции Европейски съюз и Сердика. Виолета Булц заяви, че е впечатлена както от археологията, така и от съвременния европейски облик на метростанциите.
