Since the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region was launched in 2009, it has been an important basis for the actions of the BSSSC and its regions, and BSSSC has since the very beginning participated as a key stakeholder in the planning and implementation of the strategy. Amongst others through the “Let’s Communicate” project that helps communicate the possibilities of the strategy. April 5 and 6 our Secretary General, Ms. Ann Irene Sæternes, participated in a workshop with policy area coordinators, horizontal action coordinators, as well as national coordinators. Representatives from the Directorate-General of Regional and Urban policy from the European Commission were also at the workshop.
