slide3

B-3 as an integration area?

  • Preconditions for B-3 integration
  • Possible integration scenarios
slide4

The future of the Baltic Sea strategy? Different variants

  • Assumption about inclusion of North-West Russia into cooperation pattern. Possible, if EU is strong and foreign policies of EU member states better coordinated
slide5

Main fields of interest:

  • a) joint infrastructural projects: energy and transportation;
  • b) business level cooperation, investments, pan-Baltic companies
  • c) cooperation in the field of higher education
slide6

Which type of trade?

  • Which type of pan-Baltic companies?
  • Traditional pBc versus modern international high-tech companies

Firstscenario. Threelevelintegration: a coherent Baltic Sea regionin a cooperativeEurope

  • Secondscenario.Theconter-projectofNordiccountries. TheNordic-Balticintegrationintheresponseofthe EU crises
  • Thirdscenario.Theconter-projectof 3 smallnations
slide8

First (“good weather”) scenario

  • Good preconditions for common infrastructural projects, but joint solutions are needed
  • Very advanterous for Lithunia
  • Strong business expasion, but cooperation between 3B companies and intra-industrial trade is still uncertain
slide9

Second (Nordic-centric) scenario

  • No euro perspective for Latvia and Lithuania
  • No direct European- gauge Rail-Baltica
  • State-level Nordic-Baltic negotiations very important
  • Common aim: not to be just the Nordic periphery
slide10

Third scenario: Baltic unity in an uncertain World

  • The same bad preconditios, big joint infrastructural projects not realistic.
  • But there are cheaper cooperation opportunities available. Cross-border cooperation of SMEs, tourism coop etc
  • Strong cooperation motivation: “last resort”
some messages
Some messages:
  • EU financing is one of the key elements of B-3 integration;
  • Good cooperation between B-3 is needed not to loose these opportunities,
  • Modernisation of economic structures in B-3 is the key;
  • Baltic Sea cooperation is giving better institutional bases to negotiate about it
