The 3rd mobility package: how to keep investments within Europe

In the coming years, many billions of investment will be made in mobility, in particular relating to low-emission, connected and automated driving and other innovations. "We must make sure that a large share of these investments happen in Europe", BusinessEurope Director General Markus J. Beyrer said at a social partner roundtable that was organised by European Commisson Vice-President Maroš Šefčovič on 10 April. For that to happen, he added, we need a sensible roll-out of digital solutions and help companies scale up their initiatives. We must also allow all technologies to compete with each other, as there is no silver bullet to reduce emissions and improve safety. Finally, it is crucial that regulation enables rather than stifles research and innovation to prevent an ‘innovation leakage’ out of Europe.
