Date(s) - 19/10/2020
2:15 pm - 4:00 pm
The Three Seas is an effort by twelve European Union Member States — nations residing between the Baltic, Black and Adriatic Seas — to accelerate the development of region’s cross-border energy, transport and digital infrastructure.
In order to realise this potential, the Three Seas Summit and international business forum are held each year. This time the event will be livestreamed and the panels are moderated by journalists and experts.
The event is organised by Estonia — the first digital society in the world
The Three Seas Virtual Summit and Web Forum is held in Tallinn on 19 October and it will open with a debate between heads of state on the future cooperation between the participating countries. There are also going to be presentations and discussions on the funding of international infrastructure projects, and solutions will be offered for the digitisation of the energy and transport sectors – in which Estonia, as the world’s first digital society, will be showcasing the Smart Connectivity vision created to support the development of the Three Seas region.
The list of speakers at the Three Seas Virtual Summit is already quite impressive, but in the coming weeks more high-level presenters will be added.
- So far, the presidents of eight countries have confirmed their participation: Estonia, Bulgaria, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania and Slovenia.
