An interview with Brian Simpson, the European Parliament's Transport Committee Chairman, is presented. Asked why European rail policy is focused on international corridors, Simpson said that the continent's rail network is oriented toward national ends, not international ones, hence the need to set up a Cohesion Fund to mitigate costs and overlapping interests. Simpson said that the Parliament has a lot of say over the creation of these corridors, and cites the preparation of a budget for 2014 to 2020, but claims that local ministers are unrealistic.
