the Forum of Partner Regions of the South Bohemian Region became a traditional important international conference and meeting of friends from many corners of the world. Every two years, we meet on the territory of the South Bohemian Region with all of you, our friends and partners from the neighbouring and also, at first sight, distant regions. In the last several years, we persuaded ourselves, dear friends, that by joint forces and effort of all, we will be able to overcome any distance and we will be able to function as partners of the same value.
The South Bohemian Region is, in the nationwide scope, one of the regions the foreign relationships of which may be considered for extremely active and for this reason it is a pleasure for me that in April 2020 I will be able to welcome you to the third year of Forum of Partner Regions of the South Bohemian Region, again in the premises of the Castle Riding Hall of Ales South Bohemian Gallery in Hluboká nad Vltavou.
Also in the third year of Forum, you can look forward to the meeting with important personalities and guests of honour. The program will be full of interesting contact seminars, panel discussions, presentations and first of all opportunities for meeting partners and regions from the whole world. Besides this traditional program you can look forward to the novelties we prepare for you in this year, on the working level as well as in the scope of the associated program and cultural activities. For this reason, follow regularly this website, where we will disclose gradually these surprises we prepared for you.
The motto “The friends of our friends are also our friends“ is associated with Forum since its origin in 2016, and it became its part. Identically it will apply also to the third year. And for this reason, dear friends, I am proud that I will have the opportunity to meet you already for the third time that I will be able to speak personally with you and strengthen our partner relationships.
I am looking forward to see you in April 2020, in the period of spring, when the South Bohemia will burst into flowers literally before your eyes!
Ivana Stráská, Governor of the South Bohemian Region
We are honored that also the third Forum of partner regions of the South Bohemian Region 2020 is held under the Auspices of the President of the Czech republic Mr. Miloš Zeman.
