|GP: EST goes EAST - National Transport Policy 2003-2015 - Hungary|
Rising living standards trigger greater mobility and increase demand for the shipment of goods. Transport is a fundamental condition for economic growth, and a token of freedom and a better life for people. At the same time, transport damages the environment and presents risks to life and health. Transport policy is meant to resolve this contradiction and balance the two sides by finding ways to satisfy demands for increased mobility while minimizing damage. In other words, it is the tool of sustainable mobility.
