France / Government to consolidate SNCF Réseau’s debt into state accounts

The French government has announced it is planning to consolidate the debt of infrastructure operator SNCF Réseau into state accounts. According to SNCF Réseau this is problematic, as the Ministry of Finance’s interest is to limit investment that increases national debt, while the Ministry of Transport supports investment to enhance productivity. The French government’s plan is considered to meet a requirement from the European Commission’s (EC) statistical office Eurostat. The government depreciated EUR 25 billion of SNCF Réseau’s accumulated debt on 1st January 2020, and proposals envisage that a further EUR 10 billion will be depreciated in 2022. Accordingly, investment projects to rationalise the railway infrastructure would require authorisation from the Ministry of Finance as far as SCNF Réseau is concerned. The planned arrangement would undermine SNCF Réseau’s rationalisation plans.
