Commissioner Hahn learns about TransBaltic

Regional Policy Commissioner Hahn got to learn more about some of Region Skåne's most prominent projects while paying a visit to the region. Last Saturday Mr Johannes Hahn was welcomed to Skåne by a delegation led by the Regional Governor Ms Pia Kinhult. The Commissioner‘s one day study visit started off with an introduction to the impressive European Spallation Source site, the Region's flagship project expected to change not only the southern part of Sweden once finished but also to affect the innovation status of the whole Baltic Sea area. Further Mr Hahn was introduced to Interreg projects initiated by Region Skåne. Project Manager, Wiktor Szydarowski, got the honour to give Mr Hahn a presentation of TransBaltic, briefing him about the project's ambitions of investigating not only the BSR's internal connectivity but also its external accessibility by looking towards Far East, China and Central Asia with a planed study trip to India the following day. The Commissioner found the ambition very interesting and expressed a wish to know more about the project findings on the prospects of future BSR-India trade.
