EU’s support to developing partner countries in the Transport and Infrastructure Sector

Efficient and effective transport networks are essential for growth and are vital for better connecting people and markets, cities and rural areas, ports and industry and for overall regional integration. Furthermore, transport plays a key role in ensuring people's access to social services such as water, health and education as well as to food commodities, thereby contributing to socio-economic development and job creation. Both connectivity and access to basic services achieved through the provision of road transport are fundamental pillars for broad and inclusive growth.
