“Rail Baltica – a project of the century” – with Baiba Rubess


Dear CanCham Members and Friends,

Baiba Rubesa, Chairperson of the Management Board & CEO of Rail Baltica will present “Rail Baltica – a project of the century”, the progress  of the project, the plans for this year and useful information to potential suppliers.

The Trans-European railway Rail Baltica, linking Helsinki – Tallinn – Riga – Kaunas – Warsaw and continuing on to Berlin, is to be developed within the territories of the co-operating EU Member States. Rail Baltica will support the wider EU goals of parity of access to services and infrastructure of EU Member States and development of sustainable modes of transportation, improved balance and interoperability between different means of transportation and the establishment of links with the rest of the EU rail network. 

Economic integration of Baltic States and Poland with Western Europe leads to growing trade and traffic. Well furnished and sustainable transportation links therefore promote economic growth and integration.

Rail Baltica is expected to have a major impact on the economic development of our region and could affect all of us. Join the CanCham in understanding this impact, and when it is expected to take place.

Entrance charge includes refreshments (dinner not provided). Cash bar available.
