In 2018 we celebrate the centenary of the Baltic states and the 30th anniversary of the Cohesion policy. The Riga Cohesion Conference brings together political leaders, policy makers, economic and social partners from the Baltic states and the wider Baltic Sea region to discuss policies and projects – what works and why within the Cohesion policy in the region.
The conference will focus on two key Cohesion policy objectives:
- How to address the topical challenges within European Union with Cohesion policy and how the future Cohesion policy should look like?
- How to design and implement successful, integrated and locally embedded strategies in order to mitigate the growing regional socio-economic disparities?
EIB Vice-President Alexander Stubb will deliver a high-level keynote speech on the key objectives of the new multiannual financial framework and Cohesion policy.
