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.

Le résultat d'une infra trop peu indépendante ? ÖBB-Infrastruktur AG pourrait devoir rembourser des centaines de millions d'€, dont 50 Mi rien qu'à WESTbahn. C'est un tribunal qui le dit. Toute l'importance de la régulation... https://t.co/a4nwKGAoKI #bahn #Europe #rail #SNCF

new article in leading newspaper @gazeta_wyborcza:

"Without competition, (incumbent) PKP will not get better. Yet the government gives it 20 billion zlotys and a monopoly for 10 years"

Germany:

legal opinion clearly shows that new proposed capital increase to state rail incumbent runs contrary to EU state aid law.

Other instruments should be used to strengthen rail transport in the country
