Since the Baltic Sea Region re-established itself 20 years ago,
regional cooperation has been driven by high political and

was introduced in 2009 to address key challenges and

third of the total area of the EU. To ensure that the Strategy
succeeds in taking cooperation in the Region to higher level,
new ambitions and targets now need to be discussed.
place and time for this deliberation is Gdansk, the 24-26 Octobe r
2011, during the 13th Baltic Development Forum Summit
and the European Commission´s 2nd Annual Forum on the
EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region, also co-organised by

The new regional ambitions will also play into Europe´s wider
ambitions for 2020 under the headline of Sustainable, Smart

Polish EU-Presidency and to wider reflections on the future
development of the Region. Growth strategies need close
partnerships with the private sector.
