Public consultation on the Baltic Sea Region Programme

Dear colleagues and friends,

As part of the European Union´s new funding period (2014-2020), the Baltic Sea Region programme is being currently finalized. The public consultation on the Draft Version has been just opened and will be open until 28 March 2014.

The Baltic Sea Region Programme covers eleven countries, eight of them EU Member States and three partner countries (Belarus, Norway, Russia). The Programme has been interlinked with the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region and also, where applicable, the Russian North-West Strategy.

As UBC Member cities are key stakeholders in the Baltic Sea cooperation, and as the Baltic Sea Region Programme is central for funding of our future projects, it is of greatest importance that the UBC and its Member Cities and Commissions, both jointly and on their own send their comments concerning the Draft Version, which you can reach through the website:


Accordingly, I encourage you to

- send your own comments on the Draft Programme to the authorities concerned; and

- send your comments and views to the Secretariat at info@ubc.net by 5 March so we can take them into account when preparing a draft statement for the UBC Board in Tampere 18 March 2014.

With Baltic Sea greetings,

Per Boedker Andersen
President of UBC
