How to make UBC even more efficient and useful for its members?

Discussions at the XIV UBC General Conference in Växjö proved that the stronger cooperation and exchange between the cities are required.

The UBC Secretariat asked the cities to answer five questions to get broader knowledge about cities’ needs and interests:

1. Is your city open to investments and startups? If so in which sectors?

2. Are companies in your city looking for new markets / partners in the Baltic Sea region ? Do you have an investment agency?
