Summary This report was adopted by the EP Committee on Foreign Affairs on 18 October 2006. It contains a motion for an EP resolution on a Baltic Sea Strategy for the Northern Dimension. As elaborated in the Explanatory Statement, the proposed strategy aims to: • Strengthen the existing EU ND policy programme; • Serve as a substantial contribution to the reappraisal of the scope and activities of the ND to reflect the changes in the political environment and deal with the challenges particular to the Baltic Sea Region; • Serve as an umbrella concept for the dozens of organizations operating in the Region and, thus, create better synergies. The Strategy has three main objectives: to support the ND, to make the Baltic a core focus area of the ND and to raise awareness of the Baltic Sea. Various concrete initiatives to achieve these objectives are suggested. The main points of relevance to the NDPHS are to: • Call on the Commission to make a proposal for an EU Baltic Sea Strategy; • Put forward a proposal for an annual Baltic Sea Summit to be held before the Summer European Council; • Call for an own EU budget line for the Baltic Sea Strategy, possibly under the European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument; • Call for strengthened Europol involvement and reinforced cooperation on issues such as organized crime, trafficking in human beings and drugs.
