Strategic transport projects joint vision attracted attention at the Annual Baltic Sea Strategy Forum

Being part of the flagship project "Cooperation for smarter transport" of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region, the four strategic transport projects TransBaltic, East-West Transport Corridor II (EWTC II), Rail Baltica Growth Corridor (RBGC) and Scandria were given the opportunity to present their joint vision during the European Commission's 2nd Annual Forum on the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region in Gdansk, Poland, 24-26 October 2011. The projects hosted a joint forum together with the Swedish Ministry of Enterprise, Energy & Communications back-to-back with the main event inviting stakeholders to discuss Green Corridors with focus on the projects' various solutions for more efficient transport, such as information broker system, bio-gas corridor, an internet platform for planning of intermodal transport and rail connections in the Baltic states. To enhance the message of their joint vision and efforts for a Baltic Sea Region connected to Europe and future global markets acting as facilitator of sustainable transport solutions worldwide the four projects shared a stand at the main forum exhibition. The stand attracted visitors like Johannes Hahn, EU-Commissioner for Regional Policy and Dirk Ahner, Director General of DG Regio, proving the importance of the transnational transport projects' input to the Baltic Sea Strategy.
