Highlights of this issue:

Baltic Sea Region: Where the international cooperation has started far before European Union was created

“Many of us know (but some maybe not) that far before EU the Hansa Treaty connected many Baltic cities as an economic and trading alliance which quickly became fruitful and beneficial for its members. It was one of the most important examples of the role of international cooperation in the medieval Europe.”

Tomasz Grodzki,
MD FETCS, Professor of Thoracic Surgery and Transplantation,
Senator of the Republic of Poland

Trans-European Transport network: Scandinavia

“The EU Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) policy is a vital backbone of Europe’s economic performance, present and future. Over the years, TEN-T policy has been steadily growing into a genuine European project that increasingly is guiding public and private investments.”

Pat Cox,
European Coordinator for the Scandinavian-Mediterranean TEN-T Core network corridor,
European Commission; DG MOVE,
Belgium

Arctic maritime safety requires cooperation

“The Arctic Coast Guard Forum (ACGF) was established to improve maritime safety cooperation, to address the challenges in the Arctic maritime domain and to protect the vulnerable Arctic environment. As an operationally driven organization the ACGF focuses on developing practical level cooperation between the Arctic states coast guard authorities and stakeholders.”

Pasi Kostamovaara,
Chief of Finnish Border Guard, Lieutenant General,
Finland

Restricting trade does not generate investments

“From time to time, some countries in the Baltic Sea economic area have restricted timber exports abroad. Some countries have restricted land and forest ownership by a separate law. In addition, exports of some end products have faced additional tariffs in some countries.”

Timo Jaatinen,
Director General,
Finnish Forest Industries Federation,
Finland
