The TEN section focuses its work on keeping the right balance between the three pillars of EU energy policy: competitiveness, sustainability and security.
The new White Paper from the European Commission entitled “Roadmap to a Single
European Transport Area – T owards a competitive and resource-efficient transport
system”, which was adopted by the Commission on 28 March 2011, constitutes the
basic reference for the work of the TEN section in the field of transport.
TEN section work in this area is based on an in-depth analysis of information and
communication technologies (ICT) and their impact on society, taking into account
the expectations of European civil society organisations.
The EESC permanent study group will continue to identify and promote the
expectations of organised civil society as regards services of general interest,
which, whether economic or non-economic, do much to promote the social and
territorial cohesion of the European Union.
