The conditions for boating on the River Danube will be improved and navigation is expected to develop as a result of a cooperation agreement signed by the Danube Commission and the European Commission department for mobility and transport, Hungarian news agency MTI reported on Friday.
Under the agreement signed in Budapest on Friday, the two organizations will join forces to improve the conditions for navigation on the River Danube, a major waterway in Europe.
