Press release from: Messe München

Germany´s Minister of Transport Wolfgang Tiefensee will officially open transport logistic 2007, the 11th International Trade Fair for Logistics, Telematics and Transport in Munich on 12 June 2007. In his opening address, he will comment on Germany´s new framework plan for investment in transport infrastructure through to 2010. Messe München also expects a range of other high-ranking international politicians to attend.

The Ministry of Transport´s new infrastructure plan envisages investment of over 25 billion euros in measures to improve the quality of the rail, road and waterways infrastructure. “We have to focus primarily on maintaining and improving the quality of the existing infrastructure. In this way we strengthen the economic value of our transport network. This investment plan aims to stop any further deterioration in the substance of the existing network and turn things round towards improving quality,” said Tiefensee. 57 billion euros are to be spent on expansion and new projects in the period from 2006 to 2010.

Misharin, is taking part in the Russia Day on 12 June (3.30 – 5.30 p.m., Forum I/Hall A4), where he will be talking about the globalisation of the Russian transport market and the importance of Russia as a transport corridor between east and west.
