Strengthening cross-border cooperation is the main objective of the opinion approved by European local and regional leaders during the plenary of the European Committee of the Regions (CoR) on 13 October. The opinion, drafted by Nikola Dobroslavić (HR/EPP), highlights the importance of cross-border cooperation for regional urban and rural development, and welcomes the initiative of Luxembourg’s Presidency of the European Union’s Council of Ministers to enhance the cross-border regulatory framework with new tools. It also backs the European Commission’s plans to analyse the gaps, solutions and best practices in cross-border cooperation.
The CoR should present its opinion during the informal meeting of Ministers responsible for Spatial/Regional Planning on 26-27 November 2015.
