Chapter 21 – Trans - European networks was opened on 22 June 2015.
The Trans-European Networks (TEN) are the cornerstone of the EU’s internal market development. The aim of this Chapter is to create the necessary road, energy, and telecommunication networks that will connect all EU countries with the possibility of involving third countries.
A modern infrastructure connecting various regions and national networks would ensure the free flow of goods, services, capital, and labour, this provides an important element for ensuring the EU’s social cohesion.
This Chapter comprises the trans-European transport network, the trans-European energy network, and the trans-European telecommunications network.
