Horizontal Action (HA) ‘Neighbours’ aims at creating added value to the Baltic Sea cooperation by working with neighbouring countries and regions.

HA Neighbours focuses on promoting dialogue and facilitating cooperation across the borders and with other neighbouring regions, thus enabling Baltic Sea region actors to find common solutions to mutual challenges and to seek synergies and links between various regions. The main purpose is to bring together stakeholders in the EU and neighbouring countries: Norway, Belarus, Iceland and especially the North Western territories of the Russian Federation.

HA Neighbours is coordinated by the City of Turku (Finland) and Council of the Baltic Sea States Secretariat.
