  • La réorganisation fondamentale du service de pilotage priorité première de la FMA
    La proposition fortement édulcorée du gouvernement flamand visant à autonomiser de manière interne le pitotage de navires maritimes au sein de l'administration en un "Service de gestion autonome de pilotage" (DABL), qui était resté jusqu'à présent sans contenu, "ne répond sur aucun plan aux attentes de la clientèle du Service de pilotage, à savoir les armements", insiste la Fédération maritime d'Anvers dans son rapport annuel de 1999. "Il est temps de réagir", fait remarquer la FMA. Les agents maritimes d'Anvers plaident pour une nouvelle approche sur base de principes comme l'économie d'entreprise (permettant de maintenir l'équilibre entre la garantie de sécurité et la prestation de services de qualité élevée à un prix équitable et concurrentiel), un accès au marché réglé de manière transparente et objective, et un rôle public se limitant à assurer la continuité de la prestation de services et à définir les normes.

Il rejette les arguments selon lesquels les poids lourds seraient de plus en plus impliqués dans des accidents et les considérations environnementales.
  • Près de la moitié des fonds des Réseaux Transeuropéens consacrée à des études
    Le Parlement européen (PE) veut plus d'argent pour les Réseaux Transeuropéens (RTE), en d'autres mots les travaux d'infrastructures routières transfrontalières au sein de l'Europe. De plus, l'argent doit être dépensé de façon plus efficace, car quasiment la moitié est destinée aux bureaux d'études. Un rapport du Parlement qualifie cette situation d'inacceptable.
