EUSBSR Annual Report adopted on 22 June!
The Report on the implementation of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region was officially adopted by the Commission on
22 June and is now accessible on the Strategy website. The Report is the result of a wide consultation of all stakeholders and provides
an assessment of current implementation.
The Report shows that the Strategy facilitates new projects and gives momentum to existing ones.
But the Strategy is not solely focussed on projects;
its integrated approach encourages better policy development and the alignment of funding and resources,
resulting in a better implementation of the EU's overall objectives under Europe2020.
The Report makes recommendations including:
Regular discussions of the Strategy by ministers in Council meetings
Set targets to prioritise the Strategy's work
Maximise efforts to align Structural Funds and other funding sources to the objectives of the Strategy
Develop a "Communication initiative" to ensure broader participation in the Strategy, as well as understanding of its achievements.
It is hoped that the Report will now feed into the review of the Strategy foreseen under the Polish EU Presidency.
