The MOT’s network in Greater Geneva

The MOT held its general assembly and annual conference on 20-21 March 2019 in Annemasse and Geneva, bringing together 140 participants, at the invitation of Annemasse Agglo, the Metropolitan Pole of the French Genevois, the Greater Geneva LGCC and the Republic and Canton of Geneva. Around the meetings of the MOT’s bodies, a conference on cross-border investment and field visits were organised.

"What better location to host the MOT’s network than Greater Geneva?" pointed out Christian Dupessey, Mayor of Annemasse, President of Annemasse Agglo and Vice-President of the MOT. This year will indeed be decisive for Greater Geneva, with the opening in December of the Léman Express, a rail service that will link up the French and Swiss transport networks with a new cross-border regional rail-line: a "revolution that will profoundly change the territory’s geography".

The participants had the opportunity of visiting the construction site of this groundbreaking project around Annemasse station, as well as the new cross-border greenway. They could also attend the two roundtables on cross-border investment: "From planning to management" and "Government and EU support".

Financing tools to support territories were also highlighted, such as those of the Banque des Territoires and the European Investment Bank.
