Rail Baltica: The integration of the Baltic States in the European rail network

Date: 23 May 2018
Time: 09:30

Designed for passenger and freight transportation, the Rail Baltica project will link five European Union countries; Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Finland, through a new rail infrastructure, connecting the cities of Helsinki, Tallinn, Pärnu, Riga, Panevežys, Kaunas, Vilnius and Warsaw. Over the next decade, Rail Baltica will encompass economic activity, logistics, the environment, employment and education, as well as digitalisation, innovation and safety. It will set in motion a circle of transnational regional integration, while integrating the Baltics into new supply chains of regional, European and global significance.
