Uffe Ellemann-Jensen, Chairman of the Baltic Development Forum, participated as key-note speaker in the BSSSC Conference 2009.
The BSSSC Annual Conference 2009 under the title “Regions taking the Challenge – Between the EU Baltic Sea Strategy and the UN Climate Summit” was held on 13-15 October in Ringsted, Denmark.
In his welcoming speech at the conference Uffe Ellemann-Jensen mentioned that without the regional bodies like BSSSC and Baltic Development Forum “we would probably not have come to the point where our region is the first ever to get its own EU-strategy – and thereby become a role-model for other regions within the EU”.
The BDF Chairman also presented the main conclusions of the BDF Summit in Stockholm 5-6 October.
