On September 28, 2016, Summit of the Regions took place in Brussels, with a title of a strong renewed regional policy for all regions, post 2020.
It has been established early on that Europe and the regions need one another. Importance of the cohesion policy was also accentuated. The Book with all the signed political declarations was handed in to the Presidents of the EU institutions at the Summit of the Regions with the attendance of regional and international media. The Presidents of the EU member regions were invited to attend the Summit together with the Cor President, to raise awareness and exercise influence as early as possible in this key process of shaping a renewed EU Cohesion Policy after 2020.
