The project „DBS Gateway Region“ (funded by the EU under the „Danube Transnational Programme“) brought together relevant stakeholders of all ten Danube riparian countries in order to prepare and promote the Danube-Black Sea region as the gateway for sustainable and environmentally-friendly freight transport between Central Europe and the Black Sea, the Caspian region and the Far East:
- Ports and cities/regions worked together for better hinterland connections.
- Danube and Black Sea ports developed new services.
- Cities/regions and ministries discussed future strategies and adapted policies.
- The partnership was supported by business agencies, port authorities, logistics associations and universities.
