Each year the chairmanship organises a programme in Brussels for the B7 politicians and senior officials to meet with key actors from EU institutions to discuss EU policy and actions relating to islands. This year’s Brussels visit is on 01-03 April  2008. The programme covers:

  • EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region
  • Maritime Blue Paper
  • EU Parliament’s report on islands.

Could Åland Isles snuff out the Lisbon Treaty?

The BBC website reports that the Åland Isles are playing hardball and may reject the Lisbon Treaty! See Link

Apparently the big problem is "snus". Snus is banned in the EU except Sweden, however the Åland Isles want to sell snus in Swedish waters. You've got to give it to Åland, they know how to hit the headlines!
