REX-ECO Joint Meeting: Macro-regional recovery and resilience initiatives

Online event | 27 May 2021

During the morning session, participants will discuss how macro-regional strategies contribute to the recovery and resilience of their regions. Recovery and resilience is not an easy exercise. It requires that all relevant players will have to contribute and play significant role in the restructuring of the European economy.

Just after opening remarks by the REX President Dimitris DIMITRIADIS and keynote speech by the ECO President Stefano PALMIERI, our very own Staša MESEC, Lead Project Partner, EUSAIR Facility Point will present Macro-regional recovery and resilience initiative for the Adriatic and Ionian Region. Following by other macro-regional strategies: Baltic, Alpine and Danube.

The meeting will look at how management authorities of the strategies were actually involved in the preparation of the national recovery plans, which projects have been included, how civil society organisations were part of the process. Moreover, as we gradually move towards implementation, it is of utmost importance that macro-regions take part in this process.

The afternoon session will be dedicated to the idea of a new macro-regional strategy for the whole Mediterranean region encompassing the countries of the Southern Neighbourhood. The afternoon debates will also focus on the new agenda for the Mediterranean proposed by the European Commission and the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy on 9 February 2021.
