The two-day discussions were marked by technical and political sessions with key information and Q & A about subjects falling under the responsibility of ASECAP’s different Permanent Committees (COPERs) affecting infrastructure financing, safe movement and smart mobility. The parallel developments in the US and the EU regarding the tolling priorities were specifically underlined, while the REETS consortium (the sole pan-European project on regional tolling interoperability funded by the European Commission) led by ASECAP, drew the relevant conclusions and key messages, laying the main considerations in the motorway tolling field.
