With the adoption of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region, the region is playing a new role within the EU. The Baltic Sea Region has become a testing ground for regional policies and strategies that can help bring about sustainable growth and a more dynamic integration process of the EU. Baltic Development Forum is at the forefront of this change, and this year, in line with the Polish EU Presidency, the 13th Annual BDF Summit will be held together with the European Commission’s 2nd Annual Forum of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region, in Gdansk, Poland, 24-26 Oct 2011.
