Based on a shared interest to improve connectivity between twelve EU countries located between the Baltic, Adriatic, and Black Seas, the Three Seas Initiative unites the countries both on presidential and business development levels. The Initiative's objectives are supported through regular events, including 3SI Summit and Business Forum. The events provide a unique platform for stakeholders to hold future-oriented discussions on political and commercial levels – much needed in today's increasingly volatile geopolitical and economic environment.
