On the same day, there was a conference held, titled “Secondly – Water expressway on Vistula” connected with the action of “Dziennik Bałtycki” magazine, which was highly approved by the Cluster. The participants expressed the view that the development of the Vistula River waterway is an important civilizational project, serving at the same time for: ecological transport, environmental protection, protection against floods and drought, tourism, recreation and obtaining energy from renewable sources. The project will be enhancing an interregional cooperation, which will be supported by the development of waterways, including multi-and intermodal terminals along the International Waterways E40 and E70. The project will raise the competitiveness of regions and Poland.
The idea of bringing the Vistula River back to the national and international map of the transport routes is a challenge that combines the efforts of local governments, local communities, science and business, nongovernment organizations and the media. Taking this challenge is recommended as an urgent priority for the Polish Government.
