Cohesion policy is the main European investment policy to achieve the EU Treaty objective of economic, social and territorial cohesion. In doing so, cohesion policy has a clear added value in creating jobs, sustainable growth and modern infrastructure, overcoming structural barriers, boosting human capital and improving the quality of life for all citizens across the EU.
Within the context of the ongoing debate on the future of cohesion policy beyond 2020, numerous important actors have already expressed their view on this important matter.
Shortly before the opening of the European Week of Regions and Cities, this briefing session will provide an opportunity to present the positions of the Polish Government, the Polish regions and the European Committee of the Regions and to discuss them with an interested audience in Brussels. This forms part of the activities of the European Committee of the Regions promoting the Cohesion Alliance for a strong, effective and more visible cohesion policy beyond 2020.
