As well there are a lot of other activities for further education and

EU-law is European partnership making permissible.
If I try to compare the different systems, I have to note differences fx.
- in free
information and data protection
- in collection
and analysing of prices
- in the
professional background of the experts
- in the kind of
valuation for tax and marked purposes
- in the use of
- in surveying praxis
on the site.
Who has been on this exchange of experiences, he could take great
advantages. It’s organised by the associations of authorised experts of
valuation, but is a place for discussion with professional people in
governments and administrations too. Legislation activities will become
What is to do?
What happens with us in this years, the practical men shouldn’t be quiet and
wait on „the state“ or a well-meaning destiny. Our daily professional working
place is the province. Unfortunately is there a big need for to let it be as it
is. Experts are specific earthnear and working alone. On the other side there
is a great need for information, in Germany too.
We can see that a worktogether on global-level is not so cheap. But round the
Baltic we have not so long distances. In our region around the Baltic-Sea with
a great potential for future development the ways for communication are
becoming shorter everyday. We have a chance. Only with intensifying of
co-operation we can preserve the competence for our profession.
The 26th BALTIC VALUATION CONFERENCE 2016
will take place 22. - 24. September 2016 in Gdansk /Poland.
