On this occasion, Ministers endorsed the final Declaration, recognizing the so-called UfM-isation of the Euro-Mediterranean Transport Cooperation following the adoption of the UfM Roadmap by the Foreign Affairs Ministers in January 2017, and agreed to continue to actively participate in UfM initiatives and projects in the framework of the UfM Regional Platform on Transport Connectivity and its Working Groups.

In addition, the conference highlighted the joint work carried out on concrete transport projects, namely the Completion of the Central Section of the Trans-Maghreb Motorway Axis project, promoted by GTMO 5+5, and the LOGISMED Training Activities (LOGISMED-TA) project, endorsed by the 43 UfM Member countries.
