Abstract

Danube Commission – current situation and strengthening cooperation perspectives

The aim of DC is to ensure that navigation on the Danube is free and open to the nationals, commercial vessels and goods of all states on a footing of equality, acting on the basis of Belgrade Convention on the regime of navigation on the Danube (1948).

An important aspect of the Commission's activities is the involvement in multilateral cooperation and international projects for inland waterways of European importance, and the introduction of innovative ideas into the practice of Danube navigation. The strengthening of the cooperation and projects cover almost all the main areas of navigation, primarily infrastructure development, to eliminate administrative barriers and reduce special control procedures for vessel traffic. Considering these issues together with the private sector and the competent authorities is particularly relevant for Danube navigation.

The Danube Commission actively interacts with other commissions and organisations – such as the Rhine Commission, the International Commission for the Protection of the Danube River, the Sava Commission and the Moselle Commission, Black See Economic Organisation, (BSEC), European Union etc. – and it has also expanded its contacts with specialized transport associations and unions.

We expect positive results for Danube navigation from this multilateral cooperation. The goals of Priority Area 1 a) of the European Union Strategy for the Danube Region and activities within the Rhine-Danube Corridor Forum continue to be benchmarks for us.
