Stakeholder consultation: "The challenges of metropolitan regions and their position in the future Cohesion policy post 2020"

Regional and Local Affairs
Date: Tuesday, 09 July 2019 11:00 - 12:30

Venue: European Committee of the Regions,

The European Committee of the Regions (CoR) has decided to prepare an opinion on "The challenges of metropolitan regions and their position in the future Cohesion Policy post 2020."

Metropolitan regions (MRs) are often economic centres of growth, providing opportunities for study, research, innovation and employment, which naturally attract people. But they have also to cope with specific challenges associated with transport, environment and social inclusion as well as ever increasing demand for services coupled with limited financial resources, which has a significant impact on the population's overall quality of life. 

The main objectives of this opinion are to bring a better recognition of the challenges of the metropolitan regions, of their contribution to the cohesion policy and territorial cohesion as well as to recommend measures to support them while paying attention to urban-rural links.

Mr Juraj DROBA (SK/ECR), Chairman of Bratislava Self-Governing Region and rapporteur for this opinion, would like to meet representatives of local and regional associations and other stakeholders for a consultation and an exchange of views on these issues.
