LEED Programme (Local Economic and Employment Development)

Seminar on Employment, Economic Development and Local Governance in North-West Russia, St. Petersbourg, 21 September 2005

 

Partnerships and new forms of governance are particularly well-suited to facilitate cross-border co-operation. Cross-border co-operation is an issue of high interest for the development of the Baltic Sea region and, in particular, for North-West Russian and its neighbours.  Significant efforts have been developed recently on enhancing economic ties between Finland and North-West Russia. Harmonising practices between Kaliningrad and its neighbour regions is critical for prosperity in both the European Union and the Russian Federation.

This seminar was a unique opportunity to debate the results of recent local governance developments in North-West Russia in the light of experience from other countries, analyse the main obstacles met and identify ways to progress further.  In particular it compared the results obtained by new forms of governance experimented with in various parts of the Baltic Rim and address the critical issue of cross-border co-operation. (see draft programme)

Representatives from Russia, Baltic Rim states and other OECD countries are invited to participate in this event organised by the OECD LEED Programme.  It was held on Wednesday 21st September, 2005 at the Centre for International Co-operation, St. Petersbourg.

For further information, please contact Ms. Ekaterina Travkina from the OECD Secretariat.
