Alba Iulia Business Forum – Smart & Sustainable Cities and Regions


May 16-18, 2011

The Alba Iulia Business Forum was part of a series of events dedicated to the implementation of the Action Plan of the EU Strategy for the Danube Region, focused on the European Technological Platforms in order to have quick access to European financing in view of identifying priority projects and strategic partnerships in rural and urban areas.

The event was dedicated to the business sector of the two development regions of Romania (Center and North-West), representatives of the civil society, Federations and Unions from the targeted business sectors. National Coordinators of the European Union Strategy for the Danube Region, Priority Area Coordinators and representatives of the European Commission were invited within the opening session.

Teodor Baconschi
Minister of Foreign Affairs of Romania

We are just before the adoption of the Danube Strategy by the European Council on 24 June. We are heading straight into the final stage of preparations to start implementing the specific programmes. We have the European Commission’s Communication and the Action Plan, as well as the necessary political will to rapidly start implementing the projects.Alongside Austria, Bulgaria and Hungary, we coordinate today several priority areas: 1 – waterways, 3 – culture and tourism, 5 – environmental risk management. Our institutions should be ready to participate in these structures first of all. That is particularly true of the ministries having direct coordination tasks: the MFA, Transports and Infrastructure, Regional Development and Tourism, Environment and Forests, Culture and National Heritage, which have a huge responsibility. I hope this unique opportunity for Romania will not be missed.
