In this issue –
- An economic game – An analysis of duty-free sales in the Baltic Sea region’s transportation system. Today, the Åland Islands play an important role in maritime transport in the Central/Northern Baltic Sea region as business thrives on board the ferry traffic to and from Sweden, Finland and Estonia as well as recently to Russia, all due to tax-free sales. Who would win and who would lose if Åland were deprived of its tax exemption?
- In hopes of a good start – A regional approach to future transport planning. A future vision of the transportation system in the southeast Swedish region of Blekinge, presented in a recent TransBaltic report, provides ‘food for thought’ for the BSR’s decision makers on how clear goal-setting and wise planning could help reach the so often mentioned idea of sustainable transport, being efficient, reliable and environmentally safe.
