Atlantic Council Delegation visits AmCham to talk about the 3 Seas Initiative
On September 5, AmCham CEO Daria Sivovol had a meeting with the delegation from the Atlantic Council (Washington, DC) consisting of Ian J. Brzezinski, Denise Forsthuber, and Iveta Kruma who were visiting Tallinn to discuss the upcoming 3 Seas Initiative Summit that will be hosted by Estonia in June 2020.
The Three Seas Initiative is a flexible political platform, at Presidential level, launched in 2015. The Initiative includes the 12 EU Member States located between the Adriatic, the Baltic and the Black Seas: Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia.
The Three Seas Initiative aims at stimulating more rapid development of the region stretching between the Baltic, Black and Adriatic Seas. This is to be achieved through both high level and multi-stakeholder commitment to boosting connectivity among Member States, with special focus on infrastructure, energy and digital interconnectivity.
On June 5 at the 2019 Summit of the Three Seas Initiative in Ljubljana, 11 presidents of the AmChams have signed their support for the better infrastructure, diversified and secure energy sources and growth of the digital realm.
American Chambers of these countries stand ready to provide facilitation to clearly define the roles of the key stakeholders, provide the know-how and bring together business, governments and the capital, to fully deliver such cross-border projects in the fields of technology, trade, transport, energy, digital market, and cyber-security.
AmCham Estonia truly looks forward to actively contributing to the upcoming 3 Seas Summit in 2020!
