Towards a better economic convergence and competitiveness within EU macro-regions

Hearing

The Romanian Presidency has asked the EESC for an exploratory opinion on "Towards better economic convergence and competitiveness within macro-regions, such as the European Strategy for the Danube Region (EUSDR) - the role of transnational clusters". Romania has been holding the presidency for this macro-regional strategy since November 2018 and intends to use the EESC exploratory opinion as a working paper for preparing the meeting of the Ministers of economy of the EUSDR states. Against this background, the EESC is organising a public hearing in Bucharest with the participation of stakeholders to explore how project-oriented policies can be directed towards the development of transnational networks. The hearing will also reflect the added value of transnational clusters for achieving economic convergence and reducing territorial disparities.
