Financial Mechanism Study

The BEAC Ad Hoc Working Group on Financial Mechanism Study

The Barents Summit 3-4 June 2013 in Kirkenes encouraged the Barents Euro-Arctic Council to take appropriate action to investigate the possibility of establishing a financial mechanism in the Barents region to support project activities and to facilitate making full use of the region's investment potential. The XIV Session of the Barents Euro-Arctic Council 29 October 2013 in Tromso decided to set up an ad-hoc expert group to conduct an extensive study on this issue. The ad hoc group works on the basis of a mandate adopted by the BEAC Committee of Senior Officials on 12 December 2013.
