The document wants to provide clear guidance for the future development of the region by presenting key objectives and operational goals. Three priorities are highlighted: strengthening the specific regions; strengthening the whole region as a gateway; enhancing port development.

The DBS Gateway Region emphasizes that the improvement of water transport is linked with business near ports, attracting new freight flows, turning the Danube ports into a logistic hub using renewable energy and modern technologies. In order to make the region an attractive area.

The project partners will try to remove barriers to the development of water transport by a long-term stakeholder cooperation within the so-called platform for cooperation. A Road map will also be created to include the measures of General Vision 2040 and which will make the Danube - Black Sea region an attractive gateway region for maritime and inland waterway transport.
