The EGTC Rio Minho participated yesterday in a working meeting of the ‘Building More Resilient Cross-Border Regions’ project in Brussels, promoted by the DG REGIO of the European Commission and the OCDE

This was the first of two “peer to peer” knowledge exchange meetings between the five regions participating in the project that try to promote dialogue on cross-border governance, decision-making mechanisms and strategic planning for cross-border development.

The EGTC Rio Minho presented its experience in cross-border governance and strategic planning, making known the steps taken towards real and effective cross-border cooperation.

The other four pilot regions of the project also presented their experiences: the Eurometropolis Lille-Kortrijk-Tournai; the EGTC Cerdanya Hospital; the EGTC Alzette Belval, Pôle Métropolitain Frontalier and PRO-SUD; and the EGTC Niemen-Nemunas.
