217 views

José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, participated in the opening session of the Open Days 2011, the European Week of Regions and Cities, which took place from 10 to 13 October 2011. The President made a speech on the European cohesion policy entitled "European regions - the driving force behind growth and competitiveness" (Les régions européennes - moteur de croissance et de compétitivité) on this occasion.
José Manuel Barroso appealed to European leaders to explain in their region and in their country how important was this regional and cohesion policy underlining that the money invested through this policy was not money for Brussels but money for the regions of Europe. He highlighted that it was money for the workers of Europe, for the farmers, all those who wanted to have a future in Europe, money for the citizens of Europe, for those who were unemployed and those who were afraid of being unemployed.
He concluded his speech stressing this was the appeal he wanted to make so that it was possible to work with the Member States and explained that there was no excess of regional policy in Europe, no excess of cohesion in Europe and no excess of Europe. On the contrary what Europe needed was more solidarity and more responsibility.
During the debate which followed notably in the presene of Jerzy Buzek, President of the EP, and Mercedes Bresso, President of the Committee of the Regions, the proposals on cohesion policy 2014-2020, which the EC tabled on 6 October 2011, were commented on by Members of the EP, the Committee of the Regions (CoR) and other regional and local representatives.
