No country in the world has grown on a sustained basis in recent times without successfully integrating into global markets. Globalization has melted national borders, free trade has enhanced economic integration and the information and communications technology has made geography and time irrelevant, boosted by transport ability. More efficient transport infrastructures enable a better mobility for people and goods as well as a better connection between regions. Transport infrastructure influences both the economic growth and the social cohesion. Road transport is characterised by the capillarity of its infrastructure system, able to conjugate urban and extra-urban mobility in a continuous flow based on individual planning. A region cannot be competitive without an efficient transport network. Transport was seen as a crucial element in the establishment of the Common Market, whose rules, especially those governing international transport, made possible the free trade of goods and the free movement of persons. Effective and efficient transportation systems are vital to the prosperity of regions because they link residents with employment, public services, shopping and social networks, and businesses to labor, consumer, buyer, and supplier markets. Because transportation facilities extend beyond local jurisdictions, it is essential to include them in regional development strategies. Key words: transport policy, globalization, competitiveness, innovation, business facility, economic growth
