Strengthening the railway is essential for sustainable and efficient transport…

Issue 5 2016 / 6 September 2016 /

Sweden is one of Europe’s longest countries: from south to north the distance is equal to that of our southern border to Rome, Italy. Sweden is also a country dependent on exports, which the Swedish government currently aims to increase. However, we must also decrease the transport sector’s climate emissions, which means great dependence on reliable, efficient and sustainable transportation. As Swedish Minister of Infrastructure one of my top priorities is to strengthen the Swedish transport system for both passengers and freight and steer it towards efficiency and sustainability. This means that improvement of railway transportation is at the top of my to-do list.
