During the meeting possible collaboration in transport sector was discussed. In particular the collaboration between Klaipeda and Goteborg sea ports was emphasized. If a project "Baltic gateway plus" is approved, Goteborg will be used as a main sea port and instead of transportation by land transport containers will be transported by water transport.

It will assure the increase of loads in both Goteborg and Klaipeda sea ports. Also the project meets ED transport policy requirements, such as decrease congestions on the roads and negative influence on the environment.

Seeking further development of collaboration in transport sector, the  Consulate of Sweden in Klaipeda is going to organize a seminar on these issues. Minister P. Cesna welcomed such intentions.
