of 19 December 2018

on the position to be taken on behalf of the European Union within the Regional Steering Committee of the Transport Community as regards certain budgetary matters in relation to the implementation of the Treaty establishing the Transport Community

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, and in particular Article 91 and Article 100(2), in conjunction with Article 218(9) thereof,

(3)

The Regional Steering Committee of the Transport Community (‘the Steering Committee’) is to adopt the budget of the Transport Community for the year 2019 in order to ensure the proper implementation of the TCT.
