MEDIA ADVISORY - High level representatives gather for Baltic Sea health check

26 Sep 2013 | by
The high-level representatives from all nine Baltic coastal states and EU will gather to discuss priorities and agree on actions for improving the Baltic Sea marine environment, along with observer organizations, financing institutes and other stakeholders. HELCOM Contracting Parties have committed to implement the Baltic Sea Action Plan (2007–2021), and now the progress will be reviewed. The outcome – 2013 Ministerial Declaration – is the master blueprint for stronger efforts for a healthier Baltic Sea, following the long tradition of regional HELCOM cooperation.
