Our working group metropolitan areas met in Riga on 5-7 October for a seminar on fostering metropolitan cooperation in the Baltic region.

Ways to foster metropolitan cooperation in the Baltic region and the challenges involved were on the agenda of a seminar organised in Riga on 5-7 October by our working group metropolitan areas.

The event included a conference, where an international panel (OECD, ESPON, Vienna, Oslo, Gdynia) assessed the benefits and prospects of creating a system for the managed development of the Riga metropolitan area.

A study tour provided further evidence for the need for closer regional cooperation in pursuit of a more conscious development to benefit all affected citizens.
