Press conference by Danuta Hübner, Member of the EC, on the Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region
Danuta Hübner, Member of the EC in charge of Regional Policy, gave a press conference on the community Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region. Five years on from enlargement, the region is facing pressing challenges including the deteriorating state of the Baltic Sea, poor transport links, barriers to trade and energy supply concerns. These problems have been exacerbated by a lack of effective coordination. The Strategy, presented by Danuta Hübner, above all aims to maximise the development potential of the Member States and regions in the Baltic Sea area, which is home to nearly 100 million people.
