Deputy Minister Christina Velinova presented the Bulgarian position at the International Transport Forum meeting

In order to find a balance between control and facilitation, we should introduce electronic communications to reduce the share of paper documents, underlined Caretaker Deputy Minister of Transport, Information Technology and Communications Christina Velinova during a videoconference meeting of the Ministers of Transport of the International Transport Forum. According to her, Bulgaria will continue to work on the main priorities of the International Transport Forum and will cooperate with member states to overcome the difficulties the transport of goods and passengers is facing.

“The ECMT Quota had positive impact on the overall trade growth and fair competition in the international road transport market in Europe. We have achieved significant progress towards full digitalization of licenses, digital monitoring and control of transport operations under the Quota systems.  The implementation of high standards through the Quality Charter did not allow the interruption of international road transport, despite the negative COVID-19 impact on the sector”, noted Caretaker Deputy Minister Christina Velinova.
