Ministers of these countries have signed a memorandum that focuses on their plans to finish missing links between these countries by 2030 while warning about potential crucial financial investments. Bulgaria's primary focus is the completion of the upgrading of the Sofia – Pernik – Radomir – Gyueshevo line and building a 2·5 km extension to the border with North Macedonia.

North Macedonia's focus is building missing lines to its borders with Bulgaria and Albania. It will cover the completion of work on the 65 km Kumanovo – Beljakovci – Kriva Palanka line, and the planned 23 km link from Kriva Palanka to Deve Bair on the border with Bulgaria.

'It is very important for us to expand and improve transport links in the region. 'Some connections are still missing; others need to be upgraded to provide more capacity.' said Bulgaria's Minister of Transport Hristo Alexiev on October 19.

Modernization and electrification plans of the Kumanovo – Skopje – Kičevo line are being pitched, and the construction of a 70 km line from Kičevo to Struga and the Albanian border near Lin.

Albania's desired goal is upgrading the 37 km Tiranë - Durrës line and is to build a 5·7 km branch to Nënë Tereza international airport at Rinas.

Apart from upgrading, Albania is obligated to rehabilitate the Durrës – Rrogozhinë – Elbasan – Pogradec line plus the building of the missing link to the North Macedonian border.
