abstract
Land links between Europe and Asia can offer a viable alternative to sea transport. However, the provision of efficient land links between Europe and Asia requires appropriate policy decisions on issues such as the development of adequate infrastructure and the removal of regulatory or institutional barriers that prevent the development of efficient transport services. This publication features the recommendations approved by the Ministers and the Report on Trends in Europe-Asia Trade and Consequences for Transport. It also includes the plan of action approved by Ministers to facilitate intermodal transport between Europe and Asia and the conclusions of a previous seminar in Kiev on Intermodal Transport between Europe and Asia: Opportunities and Challenges.--Publisher's description.

Main Description
Land links between Europe and Asia can offer a viable alternative to sea transport. They substantially improve the accessibility of the countries they pass through and can absorb a substantial portion of the growth in intercontinental traffic, particularly container traffic, that has been forecast. However, the provision of efficient land links between Europe and Asia requires appropriate policy decisions on issues such as the development of adequate infrastructure and the removal of regulatory or institutional barriers that prevent the development of efficient transport services.The ECMTs Council of Ministers thus recommended a series of actions aimed at developing a comprehensive approach to the provision of efficient inland transport links between Europe and Asia at its 2005 session in Moscow.
