On October 23-25 St. Petersburg will be hosting the 11th conference of sub-regional cooperation between the Baltic Sea states.

The conference is held as part of the celebrations of St. Petersburg's 300th anniversary. Its main topic is "The Northern Dimension of the European Union, Prospects for the Baltic Regions".

Thursday will see preliminary meetings of the organisation's working group and a seminar on the programme of the EU northern dimension.

The official opening of the conference will take place on Friday. Working groups will discuss various aspects of cooperation including stable economic development and preservation of cultural-historic legacy in the Baltic region.
