The Three Seas Business Forum attracted over 500 private and public sector representatives from 12 3SI countries, as well as Germany and the USA. The discussions focused on four key areas, energy, infrastructure, digitalization and innovation. The forum ran parallel to the Three Seas Initative Summit hosted by Slovenian president Borut Pahor. Among the guests were ten heads of state, president of the European Commission Jean Claude Juncker and Rick Perry, the United States Secretary of Energy. The Three Seas Initiative is a flexible political platform launched by the 12 EU Member States located between the Adriatic, the Baltic and the Black seas: Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia. The Initiative’s aim is to support regional dialogue and closer links between countries on the North-South axis.
