TransBaltic foresight scenarios

THE GREEN SCENARIO

a network of green multimodal transport corridors in the BSR  regulations by EU and other countries

THE BARENTS SCENARIO

intercontinental cargo flows attracted to the Barents Region  opening of the Northern Sea Route + transport investments on the European-Asian landbridge


Reflections from the foresight process

Reflections from the foresight process

  • Russia holds one of the keys to the future geography of freight flows in the Baltic Sea Region

  • Threat: new East-West divide (green transport solutions no priority for new EU Member States and Russia)

  • Transport investments in Russian part of the Arctic - of primary importance for distribution of intercontinental flows

  • TransBaltic eager to keep dialogue with Russian stakeholders on their transport development priorities

  • Debates planned in Syktyvkar, Arkhangelsk and Murmansk (November 2010)
