Uniunea Europeană are nevoie urgent de o strategie nouă, clară și ambițioasă pentru viitor, din care trebuie să facă parte și politica de coeziune. Noile dispoziții privind politica de coeziune de după 2020 trebuie să prevadă suficiente mijloace financiare și să garanteze o mai mare eficiență și vizibilitate a politicilor, îndeamnă Comitetul Economic și Social European (CESE), într-un aviz exploratoriu privind viitorul politicii de coeziune, solicitat de Președinția română a Consiliului.

The member states of the European Union must strengthen stakeholder involvement in their efforts to reform national economies. Together with a new long-term EU strategy for sustainable development, improved stakeholder involvement could help create a more efficient and inclusive European semester that enjoys the support of society and is prepared to tackle the challenges facing the EU.
At a time of growing social and economic disparities between the regions of the European Union and when Euroscepticism is on the rise, all relevant stakeholders must advocate for an ambitious and future-proof cohesion policy post-2020. The goal must be sustainable and inclusive economic and social growth, competitiveness and employment across the EU.
The EESC draws mixed conclusions from the European Commission's growth survey

The EESC hearing on the new MFF and cohesion policy seen from the disability perspective shows the EC proposal could still be improved
The European Commission's proposals for new rules governing the funds that underpin EU cohesion policy fail to list equality and accessibility for persons with disabilities among mandatory eligibility criteria for funding. This poses a risk that public money may be used to finance infrastructure or services that will only increase their discrimination, an EESC hearing revealed.
The EESC firmly believes that cohesion policy is a key element for Europe's future, warranting sufficient resources and appropriate reform. It therefore rejects the Commission's proposal that the cohesion policy budget be cut back for the next programming period (2021-2027) and points to the potentially harmful effect on effectiveness, profile and reputation.
Stakeholders stressed the importance of cohesion policy and the need for appropriate and effective funding

The conference took place on 14 and 15 June in Albena, Bulgaria.
