The 5th Congress of the Central Commission for the Navigation of the Rhine (CCNR) was held in Strasbourg on 3 and 4 December, under the French Presidency, with the title “Bringing together the competences for sustainable inland navigation”. More than 200 participants concentrated their thinking on the topic of the sustainable development of inland navigation.
It was the occasion for the CCNR to present the Vision 2018, a road map in which the organisation sets itself strategy guidelines for the next five years. They are ambitious but feasible, and taking them into account will contribute to the sustainable development of inland navigation in ecological, social and economic terms. (More information here)
