Commission hails Greek-Bulgarian railway project as ‘positive development’


At this stage a meeting with President Juncker has not been formally requested by the prime ministers of Greece and Bulgaria.
Earlier this month (6 September) Greece and Bulgaria signed a memorandum of understanding for the construction of a high-speed railway linking six ports, largely seen as an attempt to enhance political and economic cooperation in the Balkan region.

Contacted by EURACTIV, a European Commission Spokesperson said the memorandum was “a positive development”.

“The Commission welcomes the cooperation between the two countries and is ready to assess the proposal and the possible support that can be made available,” the EU official said.

The spokesperson also said the executive was in favour of all cross-border cooperation between member states and considers cross-border corridors “essential for our internal market and creating jobs and growth”.
