Romania will hold the Presidency of the Council of the European Union between January and June 2019. This period will be a decisive period for the European Rail Industry since many crucial EU dossiers will then be dealt with. UNIFE Director General Mr Philippe Citroën, Director General UNIFE, will review these dossiers for which the future Romanian Presidency of the EU will have a key supporting role to play: be it the finalisation stage of the implementation of the Technical Pillar of the 4th Railway Package, the discussions on both the future of the Shift2Rail R&D Programme and the post-2020 EU investment programmes for rail (Connecting Europe Facility, Structural Fund including Cohesion Fund, EFSI).

In the presentation entitled “Intermodal: the means by which to shift from Road to Rail”, Mr Ralf-Charley Schultze, President of UIRR, will deal with the following:
- The enabler: intermodal loading unit – container, swap body and semi-trailer
- Connecting the modes: transhipment and terminals
- Intermodal: combining the best of every mode of transport
- Regulatory framework: discrepancies to eliminate
- Rail infrastructure: symbolic breakthrough elements under development
- First/last mile road haulage: revolution of alternative propulsion

SNCF, represented by Mr Guillaume Foeillet, in charge of international affairs for I&P division within SNCF RESEAU, will be present in both days of the event.
