Baltic Sea Strategy brought to reality

2009/10/27

Yesterday at the General Affairs Council, we adopted conclusions bringing the Baltic Sea Strategy to reality. Thereby, the Swedish Presidency has achieved one of its top priorities.

Our work is not finished by this. The next task is to make the strategy work in practice in order to meet the challenges the region is facing. The political will of the Baltic Sea countries is crucial.

Thanks to the Baltic Sea Strategy I believe that we in ten years time will have a cleaner sea, more companies that are better integrated and more competitive, a better maritime surveillance system and a more effective cooperation between rescue services in the region.

This is a success for the Baltic Sea Region, for the EU and for the Swedish Presidency.
