Organisations behind the Fehmarnbelt Days

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 promotes regional development and green growth in the corridor stretching from  the Öresund Region to Hamburg. The STRING partners are Region Skåne, The Capital Region of Denmark, The City of Copenhagen, Region Zealand, Schleswig-Holstein and City of Hamburg. In 2011 the partners agreed on establishing a permanent STRING secretariat to coordinate and promote the joint agenda of the partners, and implement the political decisions. The work shall build on the politics and initiatives that are already part of the partner´s political agendas, priorities and activities. What STRING adds to this is a joint political goal, emerging when the common objectives and actions of Northern Europe´s strongest economies are put forward and placed on the political agenda.
