Organisations behind the Fehmarnbelt Days

City of Malmö
The City of Malmö is one of the largest employers in Skåne and its staff work every day to shape Malmö’s present and future. They are tasked with promoting social welfare and sustainable development throughout the city’s schools, elderly care facilities, planning departments, cultural programmes and other areas. All City of Malmö departments share a common mission: to provide high quality services to local people.

Region Skåne, in the southernmost Swedish region, is a self-governing, public authority responsible for health care and hospitals, and the regional development concerning business, transport, culture, environment and climate. The highest decision making body of Region Skåne is the regional council, directly elected by the citizens of Skåne.

Fehmarnbelt Committee
The Fehmarnbelt Committee is a cross-border Danish-German cooperation in the Fehmarnbelt Region focusing on the fields of work and coordination. The committee consists of Danish and German politicians, representatives from municipalities and county authorities as well as representatives from organisations and associations. The goal of the Fehmarnbelt Committee is to position the Fehmarnbelt Region as a destination on the axis of development between Copenhagen/Malmø and Hamburg. Thereby, the FBC aims at ensuring an integration process through recommendations and support of cross-border activities.

Fehmarnbelt Business Council (FBBC)
As an international consortium, the FBBC plays a coordinating role and serves as a platform for all parties interested in the Fehmarnbelt project. The FBBC supports them to focus on their respective projects and to participate in joint activities. Representing about 400,000 companies through its members, the FBBC truly is “the voice of business” and, therefore, the natural contact point for government and administration in cross-border issues in the regions Hamburg Metropolitan Region, Schleswig-Holstein, Greater Copenhagen and Region Skåne.

Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg
The Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg is proud to be the host city of the third Fehmarnbelt Days. The Fehmarnbelt Region is very important for Hamburg as it further connects the city with Northern Europe and the Baltic Sea – traditionally a very important focus of our economic and social activities. Especially as a city state with a far-reaching trade history and as member of the Hanseatic league, Hamburg knows about the importance of globalization and networks. In order to create synergies, we aim at fruitful cooperation with our neighbors on all levels. Hamburg’s Senate Chancellery as the involved organizer supports the work of the Senate, Hamburg’s government. There, Hamburg’s regional and international relationships are shaped, together with different involved actors.
STRING
STRING is a political cross-border partnership between Akershus County and Østfold County in Norway, Region Halland, Region Västra Götaland, Region Skåne and the City of Malmö in Sweden, the City of Copenhagen, the Capital Region of Denmark and Region Zealand in Denmark, Schleswig-Holstein and the City of Hamburg and in Germany. Our vision is for the STRING region to be the driver behind a Northern European green growth corridor in a functional partnership with our neighbouring regions. The corridor will be a green European powerhouse; a strong strategic axis contributing to knowledge, growth, welfare and sustainability in Northern Europe, including the Baltic Sea Region.
Femern A/S
