Organized by the Baltic Development Forum and DG Regio, Connecting Europe – Smart and green partnerships Summit brought together over 800 stakeholders and decision-makers in the private and public sectors of the Baltic Sea Region to discuss the recent developments and needs for further infrastructural improvements within the region.

The Summit gave a most high-level portrait of key-note speeches and welcome addresses. The occasion was opened by HRH Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark and followed by a welcome address by Lord Mayor of Copenhagen Frank Jensen. The keynote speeches were held by Prime Minister of Denmark Helle Thorning-Schmidt, Prime Minister of Estonia Andrus Ansip, Regional Policy Commissioner Johannes Hahn and Transport Commissioner and Vice-President of the European Commission Siim Kallas.

RBGC and RBGC Russia earned a great deal of important visibility and an excellent amount of networking with the Summit participants. For instance, the RBGC stand attracted Director General of DG Regio Walter Deffaa as well as Vice-President of the European Commission Siim Kallas and Head of his Cabinet Henrik Hololei who demonstrated the strong positive support to the projects.
