Baltic leaders discuss their sea in Tallinn

The prime ministers of the three Baltic states and Poland are meeting in Tallinn June 3-5 in the latest of a series of recent get-togethers.

This time the occasion is the 9th Annual Forum of the European Union Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region, though Estonian Prime Minister Jüri Ratas, acting as host had advance meetings June 3 with his colleagues from Poland, Latvia, and Lithuania to discuss shared large-scale projects and the proposals of the European Commission regarding the budget of the EU for 2021–2027.

When Māris Kučinskis, Prime Minister of Latvia, and Saulius Skvernelis, Prime Minister of Lithuania, reached Stenbock House, the heads of government planted oak trees to mark the centenary of the Republic of Estonia and were told about progress made on the construction of the Arvo Pärt Centre in Laulasmaa. The new building dedicated to the great Estonian composer will be completed this autumn.

On  4 June, the Baltic leaders got together again before the 9th Annual Forum of the European Union Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region to discuss three topics: NATO and security, the synchronisation of Baltic electricity systems with Europe, and Rail Baltica.

A live stream of the forum itself can be watched at the official webpage and a report about the state of the Baltic Sea can be downloaded from the same website.
