Political conference at a crucial time

This autumn, the Danish Minister for Transport will present the Construction Act proposal for the Fehmarnbelt fixed link to the Danish Parliament. The proposal is expected to be adopted in the spring of 2015. The decision will have immense implications and value for the STRING Region over the next decades. The STRING-organised Fehmarnbelt Days Political Conference “Green Growth – Region in Motion” on 1 October 2014 could not take place at a more crucial time.


A joint strategy in the making

In 2021 the fixed link will introduce a radical improvement of regional infrastructure and a large potential for tourism growth. In this perspective, a working group consisting of representatives from the five regions within the Fehmarnbelt Region, is developing a tourism strategy called Building Tourism due this summer.

Both sides of the Fehmarnbelt: cooperation and a new brand
