Northern Dimension Partnership on Transport and Logistics

The Northern Dimension Partnership on Transportation and Logistics (NDPTL) was established in October 2009, and is one of the four existing partnerships of the Northern Dimension. The current members of the NDPTL are Belarus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Russia, Sweden and the European Commission.

NDPTL endeavours to accelerate the implementation of major infrastructure projects within the Northern Dimension region, serving as a regional forum for transport and logistics issues and complementing the work of cooperation structures already in existence, with project financing to stem from national budgets, the EU, international financial institutions and relevant national financial institutions.

A secretariat for the partnership was set up within NIB in Helsinki and started its activities in February 2011 with the objective of providing administrative and technical support to the Steering Committee and High Level Meetings in their task of monitoring the implementation of the Partnership. The secretariat acts a liason between the members of the partnership and international financial institutions as well as other stakeholders. 

The objectives of the partnership are detailed in the Memorandum of Understanding signed in Naples on 21 October 2009 on a ministerial level by 11 countries and the European Commission.
