This year’s 5th Baltic Business Forum (BBF) will be held April 24-26 in the Polish port town of Świnoujście on the northwestern edge of Poland and in the nearby German seaside resort of Heringsdorf on the Polish-German border. The event will be held under the motto “Europe: North, East—Business Without Borders.”

Former Polish President Aleksander Kwaśniewski, who chairs the BBF’s Strategy Council and has been actively supporting the development of the EU’s relations with countries beyond Poland’s eastern border for years, will deliver an opening address at the conference. Russia, which currently presides over the Council of Baltic Sea States, will be guest of honor at the event. According to the Polish-Russian International Commission for Economic Cooperation, the Baltic Business Forum will be a key business event in 2013.

The annual Baltic Business Forum has become a traditional venue for the exchange of views and experiences by businesspeople and politicians from the Baltic Sea region and countries east of Poland. This year, as every year, past and present state leaders, ministers, local government officials, and heads of many government agencies are expected to attend. Those in attendance will also include independent experts, representatives from nongovernmental organizations, and above all businesspeople. All these guests will reflect on the impact of climate policy on the economies of the countries of North and Eastern Europe, as well as on effective public-private partnership models and on ways of creating transnational transport systems. Separate sessions and panel discussions will focus on topics including agriculture, energy, local government, media and innovation. There will also be discussions on investment opportunities in Ukraine and Belarus.

The forum offers an opportunity to participate in discussions held by experts and trade fairs. Participants will be able to establish international contacts and learn practical things related to the political and business environments.

Held since 2009, the Baltic Business Forum is a meeting of businesspeople and politicians from the European Union and countries beyond Poland’s eastern border. The conference is organized by the Stowarzyszenie Europa-Północ-Wschód (Europe-North-East Association), together with the Polish Information and Foreign Investment Agency, the Chairman of Poland’s Zachodniopomorskie (West Pomerania) province, and the Mayor of Świnoujście.

The conference agenda is available online at www.bbf2013.pl. The website is also where reservations to attend the conference can be made.
