Adoption of the new Communication on local and regional governments in partner countries
PLATFORMA welcomes the adoption of the new Commission Communication on local and regional authorities in partner countries.
Noteworthy announcements at the Assises of decentralised cooperation
It was certainly all sewn up that local and regional governments and their organisations would be honoured at the Committee of the Regions. However, it must be noted that the third edition of the Assises of decentralised cooperation ended on a high note.
Getting a glimpse of PLATFORMA Forum
With the occasion of the PLATFORMA Forum, local and regional elected representatives had the opportunity to recall that the economic crisis calls for better coordination and joint development actions carried out by European local and regional governments. Transparency and efficiency were also considered vital in order to justify decentralised cooperation budgets to European citizens.
