Candidate countries' progress in regional policy

This workshop is organized within the European Week of Regions and Cities (#EURegionsWeek) which is the biggest annual Brussels-based event dedicated to cohesion policy

DG REGIO's role should not be limited to Chapter 22 "Cohesion policy and coordination of structural instruments" or the "Resources, agriculture and cohesion" cluster in the context of the recent Commission proposal for strengthening the whole accession process. Indeed, in line with the post-2020 proposal for cohesion policy, policy clusters like "Competitiveness and inclusive growth" and "Green agenda and sustainable connectivity" are at least equally as important for DG REGIO's post- 2020 proposed policy choices.

Workshop agenda:

  1. Opening/short introduction by DG REGIO
  2. General overview on the progress made
  3. Forthcoming challenges and possible ways forward
  4. Q&A
  5. Conclusions


When: Wednesday, October 13, 2021 2:30 PM to 4:00 PM
