Wednesday this week the Plan Bothnia project was presented to the tenth annual meeting of the HELCOM MARITIME group at the premises of the Finnish Ministry of Transport and Communications, Helsinki. Project Staff Ms. Annukka Pekkarinen (Centre for Maritime Studies, Turku University) and Mr. Hermanni Backer (Project Manager) had a presentation on overall progress as well as the maritime traffic chapter, written by Centre for Maritime Studies. The group welcomed the work done without remarks.
The HELCOM MARITIME group is attended by ministries and agencies responsible for maritime traffic matters in the Baltic Sea countries, and the EU commission (DG MOVE). A number of sub-groups discuss special issues like AIS information, safety of navigation and various IMO submissions.
