Multimodal Pan-European Transport Corridor X:

Salzburg - Ljubljana - Zagreb - Beograd - Nis - Skopje - Veles - Thessaloniki including its branches:
A: Graz - Maribor - Zagreb;
B: Budapest - Novi Sad - Beograd;
C: Nis - Sofia ( - Istanbul via Corridor IV); and
D: Veles - Bitola - Florina (- via Egnatia to Igoumenitsa).

 

The aim of the cooperation between the participating countries is the development of main and ancillary infrastructures on Corridor X.

The development of the Corridor X should include maintenance, reconstruction, rehabilitation, upgrading and new construction of main and ancillary infrastructures as well as its operation and use with a view to fostering the most efficient and environmentally friendly transport modes (infrastructure and services). The co-operation furthermore aims at perceiving and defining prerequisites and conditions for the most efficient use of funds and know-how provided by public and private sources.

The Hellenic Ministry of Transport and Communications has inaugurated the establishment of the Technical Secretariat of the Steering Committee for Pan-European Corridor X during the 2nd Meeting of the Pre-Steering Committee for Pan-European Corridor X, on November 26th 1999 in Thessaloniki.

The role of the Technical Secretariat was to become active especially in the collection and evaluation of data on Corridor X physical and operational characteristics and the exploitation of all relevant studies and information with respect to Pan-European Corridor X. The Technical Secretariat has started officially its operations, according to the approved work programme on January 1st 2000.

Before the 3rd Steering Committee Meeting, on March 15th 2001, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) had been signed by the Ministers of Transport of the Corridor X's countries. Greece (Ministry of Transport and Communications) was elected to Chair the Steering Committee until March 2004 towards the implementation of the MoU.

The extension of the Greek Chairmanship until March 2007 was decided during the 6th Meeting of the Steering Committee (Thessaloniki, 27/2/2004), while during the 9th Steering Committee meeting (Graz, 15/6/2007) its extension for three more years (until June 2010) was agreed.

Concerning the optimization of the operation of Corridor X, during the 5th Meeting of the Steering Committee (Bled, 18/7/2003) the constitution of a Working Group for the improvement of Border crossings along Corridor X was decided. Since then, the Group has met three times (January 2004, February 2005, November 2005), targeting to an agreement on a Protocol for cooperation on border crossings issues. The Protocol on cooperation on border crossings along Corridor X was signed by the Ministers of Transport of the participating countries on June 16th 2006 in Corfu, and after the 8th Steering Committee Meeting (Corfu, 15/6/2006). Greece (Ministry of Economy and Finance) was elected to Chair the Steering Committee for three years (until June 2009). Towards the implementation of the Protocol the Working Group for the improvement of border crossings has met five times since the signing of the Protocol, in December 2006, June 2007, February and December 2008 and January 2010. The Rules of Procedures and the Action Plan of the Working Group have been approved by the Steering Committee in its 9th meeting in Graz.


The latest meetings of the Steering Committee (11th meeting) and of the Working Group for border crossings (8th meeting) took place in Belgrade on January 21-22, 2010.
