Welcome to Barents Reunion. We are an organization that promotes cross-border cooperation within the Barents region. In 2008 we set out on a journey with the goal of increasing networking and cooperation among the people living in the region.
On June 12-13 the annual Barents Reunion convention takes place in HaparandaTornio. The topic for the 2013 convention is:
"Transforming trade barriers into boundless opportunities"
The program is shaping up to provide an exciting mix of topics and speakers including Thorvald Stoltenberg, Paavo Lipponen, Gunnar Oom, Sven-Erik Österberg, Mika Riipi and Ole Norrback. Please note that online registration is open until the end of May.
The convention always culminates in awarding the Barents Entrepreneur of the Year and the Barents Young Entrepreneur of the Year. The awards are given to entrepreneurs who during the year have carried out unique achievements in the Barents area and who inspire others.
The winners will be presented during Barents Reunion 2013 in HaparandaTornio.
