We underline the importance of the regional level and work to influence the nations within the Baltic Sea Region and the EU institutions when national and European policy in the Baltic Sea Region (BSR) is formulated and implemented.
BSSSC will also work for coordination of different EU policies and national policies.
BSSSC has a rotating chairmanship system, and 1 January 2017 Eastern Norway County Network has taken over the responsibility of this network organisation for the next two years.
Eastern Norway County Network has been involved in BSSSC since the beginning in 1993, and the new Chair, Mr. Roger Ryberg, and his staff look forward to two interesting and challenging years of Baltic Sea Region cooperation.
The Chairmanship was originally intended for 2017-2018, but with consent from the BSSSC Board, the Norwegian Chairmanship will continue to the end of 2019.
