The issue covers topical themes, including environment and maritime industry in the Baltic Sea Region. Highlights of this issue:

Connecting Europe – The Three Seas Initiative

“As Europe and the world around it changes, the Three Seas Initiative was born out of a practical need to boost connectivity and economic cooperation on the north-south axis of the European Union.”

Urmas Reinsalu,
Minister of Foreign Affairs of Estonia

Latvia is ready to be part of climate change solution

“2015 was a breakthrough year for the global climate policy, when in December 195 countries adopted the Paris Agreement, which is the first truly global agreement on climate change where all countries have set, in a nationally determined manner, their contributions to limiting climate change.”

Juris Pūce,
Minister of Environmental Protection and Regional Development,
Latvia

Northern Dimension 2.0

“The accession of Finland and Sweden in 1995, moved the European Union northwards. The Union extended over the Arctic Circle, and Russian Federation became a next-door neighbor. The accession negotiations with Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland further increased the role of the Union in the Baltic Sea region.”

Matti Anttonen,
Permanent State Secretary,
Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland

Finnish ports joining the digital age

“The digitalisation of logistics and port processes has the potential to massively streamline supply chains and improve the sustainability of existing infrastructure. This is an indisputable goal of macroeconomics.”

Annaleena Mäkilä,
Managing Director,
Finnish Port Association,
Finland
