Seminar on the Danish priorities and action areas, 23rd of September 2010, 8.30-13.00, Langelinie Allé 17, København Ø.
Denmark has assumed considerable responsibility for implementing the EU strategy for the Baltic Sea region, which may become a new framework for European and regional integration, but how far have we reached with implementation of the strategy? How can it be used to facilitate Danish priorities regarding EU’s new growth strategy (Europe 2020)? How can neighbouring areas help to promote the competitiveness of Denmark and green growth opportunities of the Danish Government and what is required to get business more involved? These are some of the questions which we will try to find answers to from different angles.
The seminar follows up from last year’s seminar and includes the preparation of the EU strategy first stakeholder conference, taking place on 14th-15th October in Tallinn.
