The objective of the STBR process is to develop a transport strategy for the whole of Barents Region jointly, and as an outcome propose and prepare concrete measures, which in due time can be included in national investment programs of each country. The strategy will rest on the realisation that the transport authorities of all countries need to see the Barents Region as a common transport area and to reach best result during the strategy, development collaboration is necessary.The second phase of STBR focuses on measures that the first phase identified as the most urgent. A specific goal for STBR II is to implement recommendations from the first phase of STBR on a concrete level.
