Reiljan explained that the crisis in Ukraine and a reduction in state financing have affected the organization. "For example, the road sector as a whole is contracting and we have to decide which objectives could still be met with the current budget reduction."

"Because we are just halfway through these initiatives, not all of the changes have been evaluated or finalized," Reiljan said.
