First BSSSC Board Meeting by the Norwegian Chairmanship
Visits to Kalmar and Brussel as well as 2017s first BSSSC Board Meeting. A busy week comes to an end for the BSSSC.
The BSSSC has had an exciting week. We started in Kalmar, Sweden, to present our work on youth policy in the Euro Region Baltic Annual Forum. There we exchanged best practices concerning youth policy with policy makers from both local, regional and national level.
The eighth and ninth of February the Norwegian Chairmanship had its first Board Meeting for BSSSC. Regions from eight countries were present as well as Euroregion Baltic (ERB), Council of Baltic Sea States (CBSS) and the Baltic Sea Commission of the Conference of Peripheral Maritime Regions (CPMR).
The Board Meeting was a huge success, with highlights being presentations and interesting discussions with Mr. Nicola De Michelis, head of Cabinet of the Commissionaire for Regional Policy and Mr. Kim Kuivalainen, Policy Officer from the European External Action Service. Also, the Board approved the position paper on cohesion policy created by our working group. This will be a useful tool to advocate the interests of the regions of BSSSC in the EUs work on Cohesion Policy.
A summary of the meeting will be posted shortly on our webpage.
