Dynamics of Railway Market Opening - Choice of a Policy

Opening of the railway market has no alternative for all European countries. Before the very opening of the market, it is necessary to make a number of independent and difficult decisions, namely, to find solutions with unpredictable results as far as dynamics and final models of realization of these solutions are concerned. The duration of the period preceding the beginning of activities on the opening of the market depends on the interest and possibility to create a climate for opening of the market. The opening of the market can also be realized in phases until a completely free market can be established. In different phases, access to the market can be restricted (for example, only for national and regional railway undertakings). In order to achieve effectiveness and avoid unnecessary costs, all the activities shall be synchronized. This requires a clearly stated policy regarding the dynamics of the market opening process. It is possible to define several different policies, taking into account the existing characteristics of the railway sector in a certain country. The paper presents different possible policies of the railway market opening in Serbia and use of the ANP approach for the choice of the most appropriate policy.
