CEMR advocates strengthening territorial dimension in the CoR’s consultation
On 16 March, CEMR attended the European Committee of Regions’ (CoR) stakeholder consultation of the mid-term revision of the Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF).

On behalf of CEMR, our Executive Director of European Affairs, Angelika Poth-Mögele, stressed that in order to strengthen the territorial dimension in the MFF review, the CoR’s opinion paper should:
  • Address the issue of the rules of the stability and growth pact and their impact which leads to decreasing local public investments;
  • Make reference to better regulation to advocate for participation of local and regional governments and the CoR;
  • Consider the EU Urban Agenda as a good model to better involve local governments.

The result of this consultation is an opinion paper that the Committee of Regions will send to the European Commission.
