What is the FBBC?

The FBBC is a trinational consortium established in 2007 as an international business union of chambers and business associations from Denmark, Germany and Sweden, representing more than 400,000 companies through its members.

The chairman of the FBBC is Dr Arno Probst, entrepreneur and vice president of the Lübeck Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and the vice chairman is Michael Svane, CEO of the Federation of Danish Transport and a director within the Confederation of Danish Industry. The council is the highest decision-making body of the FBBC, supported by a task force. Each member has one seat in both the council and task force. The FBBC has its office at the Lübeck Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

Where can I meet the FBBC?

What position does the FBBC have in regard to the fixed link?

The Fehmarnbelt fixed link is to strengthen the axis of growth between the metropolitan areas of Copenhagen/Malmö and Hamburg/Lübeck. To support this process, the Fehmarnbelt Business Council (FBBC) was established in Lübeck in 2007. It is only with the early involvement of the business community that the Fehmarnbelt fixed link will become a success from the very first day of opening. Since the establishment of the FBBC, its member organisations have been pursuing this common goal.

What is the current status of planning of the Fehmarnbelt fixed link?

The Danish–German infrastructure project includes both the tunnel between Lolland and Fehmarn as well as the necessary expansion of the connections for road and rail as well as sustainable solutions for the Fehmarnsund link.
