At the end of 2019, the new European Commission President, Ursula von der Leyen, stressed in the mission letter to her Commissioner for Transport, Adina Vălean, the importance of smart and sustainable mobility.
She also highlighted the necessity of “increasing the uptake of sustainable and alternative transport fuels for road, maritime and air transport”.
