More than 800 participants from Sweden, Denmark and Germany joined the 2018 Fehmarnbelt Days in Malmö. On May 28 and 29, the conference offered a platform for exchange for various actors from business, politics, administration and civil society.
The main focus was on the exchange of experiences, networking and first-hand information, such as a tunnel-status update from Femern A/S and EU coordinator for the Scandinavian-Mediterranean corridor, Pat Cox, informed about financing. Cox again emphasized the importance of the Fehmarnbelt Tunnel for Europe. A traffic axis is being created from northern Sweden to southern Sicily, bringing Scandinavia closer to Central Europe.
The FBBC’s and Fehmarmbelt-committee delegation returned from their three-day trip to Malmö and Copenhagen with many new impressions and contacts. Around 80 representatives from business and politics from Schleswig-Holstein, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Hamburg and the Danish region of Zealand took part in the Fehmarnbelt Days 2018 in Malmö and, following the conference, dealt with the Danes’s digitization strategy.
