Report from the EC on the implementation of EU macro-regional strategies
The report will be discussed at the meeting of the Friends of the Presidency MRS - FoP MRS on 21.2.2019, as well as at the meeting of the High level group of macro-regional strategies, which will take place on 22.2.2019 in Brussels.
This document comes in support of the report to the European Parliament, the Council, the European Economic and Social Committee and the Committee of the Regions, on the implementation of EU macro-regional strategies (the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region (EUSBSR), the EU Strategy for the Danube Region (EUSDR), the EU Strategy for the Adriatic and Ionian Region (EUSAIR) and the EU Strategy for the Alpine Region (EUSALP)).
It aims at providing more detailed information concerning the state of implementation of each macro-regional strategy. The document is based inter alia on contributions from the key stakeholders of the strategies, EU institutions, Member States representatives, academia and experts. The differing structure between the individual chapters on each of the four macro-regional strategy is due to the different maturity of each strategy (they have been adopted at different time) hence the differing availability of data and deliverables.
Regarding EUSAIR, a development into the phase II (operating phase, ability of the MRS to manage joint structures, ability of stakeholders to establish joint structures, etc.) was recognised. Read more about it HERE.
