. – In accordance with Article 2(1) TFEU, the Union may empower Member States to act in areas where it has exclusive competence. Following the request made by Germany to be empowered to amend its bilateral road transport accord with Switzerland of 1953 with a view to authorising cabotage operations during the provision of passenger transport services by coach and bus in the border regions between the two countries, an answer has been given by the European Commission, by making this proposal, which also gives a response to Switzerland, both countries being interested in concluding the same agreement.
Cabotage operations within the Union by third country carriers not holding a Community licence affect the functioning of the internal market for coach and bus services. They also affect the Land Transport Agreement between the EU and Switzerland, under which cabotage operations are not authorised, excepting the case of pre-existing rights in bilateral agreements between Member States and Switzerland. Currently, only France has such an agreement with Switzerland authorising cabotage.
Taking into consideration that Germany’s request falls within the scope of the article mentioned and the fact that under the Commission’s proposal, the authorisation is not subject of discrimination between carriers established within the Union and that there is also a clearly limited geographical scope of the cabotage operations, I have voted for this proposal, following the Rapporteur’s recommendations.
