ALLRAIL – Because competition matters!


Why competition matters?


„Because challenge and competition make us better. If our businesses aren’t challenged, if they don’t have to compete, then they don’t have any reason to work to serve people better. Competition is the motor that drives businesses to do better for consumers. To cut prices. To offer more choice. To produce innovative products.“

Margarethe Vestager, European Commissioner for Competition, in a speech at the
American Enterprise Institute in Washington on September 18, 2017

Taken from: How competition can build better market


Ms. Vestagers quote concisely sums up why competition matters. The rail sector in the EU is currently still far from being as competitive as other industries.

ALLRAIL aims to work closely with the EU Institutions, the European Union Rail Agency and Regulators to support the full establishment of a competitive Single European Railway Area.

Crikey - what a statement in the Spanish media:

Incumbent Renfe is planning to open a new lobbying office at EU level in Brussels "in its fight against the liberalization of high-speed rail in our country"

Vestager in hot seat as she moves to derail mega-merger:

Intéressant article!
Je retiens :
- La libéralisation a permis de responsabiliser les territoires et décentraliser les décisions relatives au transport ferré régional.
- La baisse du coût de production a aussi permis une hausse de l’offre (Constat aussi valide au Royaume Uni).
