Despite the challenges brought by the pandemic, it was this sector, among others, that helped keep our economic wheel turning and our country operating normally. These meetings will be essential in order to offer viability, sustainability and safety to the transport sector. This foundation will be instrumental in building that sense of intermodality in the people. It is a priority for this Government to reach its vision in terms of transport both on the basis of objectives scheduled for 2030 and the 2050 strategies for the adoption of greener and cleaner modes of transport and I believe that these meetings will be another step that will lead to this, ”said Minister Ian Borg.
