The CPMR’s Baltic Sea Commission (BSC) held its General Assembly on 12 June, hosted by the Federal State of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, in its federal representation, in the Ministergärten, in Berlin, Germany.

Over 70 regional representatives gathered for the meeting which included updates and reports from working groups and policy areas, the financial report and budget, and the work plan for the years 2017-2018.

There was also a seminar feeding into the CPMR’s ongoing Reflection on the Future of Europe.

The General Assembly took place ahead of the major stakeholder conference, the 8th Annual Forum of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region. More than 800 participants are attending the forum and the two-day programme features more than 30 workshops and seminars.

The Baltic Sea Commission is one of the main organisers of the event, along with the Federal Foreign Office of Germany, in close cooperation with the European Commission.
