The Romanian Presidency has asked the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) for an exploratory opinion on the theme: Towards better economic convergence and competitiveness within macro-regions, such as the European Strategy for the Danube Region (EUSDR) - the role of transnational clusters.

Romania has been holding the presidency for this macro-regional strategy since November 2018 and intends to use the EESC exploratory opinion as a working paper for preparing the meeting of the Ministers of economy of the EUSDR countries.

Against this background, the EESC is organising a public hearing in Bucharest with the participation of stakeholders to explore how project-oriented policies can be directed towards the development of transnational networks. The hearing will also reflect the added value of transnational clusters for achieving economic convergence and reducing territorial disparities.
