Through Activity 4 also Russian stakeholders will contribute to in this process.

The workplan of Activity 4 consist of three sub-activties:

-          Transnational Rountable Forum analyzing the critical measures of infrastructure development on the local and regional level (participants from all over BSR)

-          Compiling “Rail Baltica Growth Corridor Memorandum for N-W Russia” to contribute to the transnational Rail Baltica Growth Strategy evaluating critical infrastructure investments identified by the regional round-tables from the transnational point of view.

Regional roundtable creates acceptance for the ‘Rail Baltica Growth Strategy’ and activates Russian, Finnish and Estonian stakeholders for the objectives of the cooperation. Russian Partners, Associated Organizations and stakeholders are invited to contribute to the Regional roundtable work with their Finnish and Estonian counterparts. The results of the discussion in Regional roundtable are contributing to the discussions in the Transnational Roundtable Forum.

Transnational Roundtable Forum consists of critical stakeholders with representatives from national ministries, infrastructure providers, operators of rail services, European stakeholders and other transnational transport projects in the BSR. The Forum analyzes the critical measures of infrastructure development on the local and regional level along the Rail Baltica. The Forum evaluates from the transnational viewpoint infrastructural, spatial and institutional challenges in the region. All stakeholders are invited to represent their national and institutional views. As a continuation, Forum will evaluate from the transnational point of view the development avenues and infrastructural, spatial and institutional solutions for Rail Baltica including critical infrastructure investments tracked down during the process.
