The Transport Working Groups of the CPMR’s Baltic Sea Commission and the Nord Sea Commission held a joint meeting on 18 October 2017 in Helsinki.

The Work Plan of the CPMR Baltic Sea Commission Transport Working Group clearly states that cooperation with the North Sea Commission is a priority. The Chairs and Vice-Chairs of the two Working Groups met in Helsinki, back-to-back with the CPMR General Assembly, to discuss potential area of cooperation and joint activities.

It was decided that the two Working Groups will organise a joint meeting during spring 2018. The North Sea Commission will prepare a session on green transport solutions and the Baltic Sea Commission will prepare a session on aviation. The meeting will also discuss current policy decisions that the CPMR is working on in relation to the CEF revision and future EU budget.
