Abstract
The construction of the Öresund Bridge in 2000 and the opening of City Tunnel in the end of 2010 brought the new opportunities for trade and communication and has positioned the area as the regional hub in the Baltic Sea. This paper is related to the continuing discussion on the potential of the Öresund Region. The goal of this paper is to identify potential pros of a cross-border coalition of the two countries and to establish what could be done to make the Öresund region work for the best of both countries. There are three sources of potential gain in the form of the integration of the two labour markets, gains from a decrease in unemployment, and learning from the "better practice".
