What is being negotiated?
The legal regulations that will ensure the smooth flow of people, goods, capital and information in the EU are integrated into this very complex and challenging negotiating chapter. Aligning Montenegro's transport policy with EU acquis is one of the biggest challenges in the EU accession process. Transport policy is governed by Chapter VI, Articles 90-100 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union or the Lisbon Treaty. It aims is to by setting framework conditions for the various branches of transport, enable the rational transport of goods and passengers within the EU as well as on international level, further removing restrictions between countries. It also contributes to a more balanced development of the economy at the EU as well as its expansion, price stability, improving passenger transport comfort and living standards of the population.
The aim of the European policy in this chapter is to respond to the growing mobility of citizens, goods and services within the EU. The EU legislations in this area create conditions for safety, secure and efficient transport, improved quality of transport services and improvement of existing and construction of new transport infrastructure. Standards for reducing the environmental impact of transport, as well as more effective protection of passengers' rights and the implementation of social legislation defines with the legal framework of this chapter.
