Brussels held from 8 to 11 October the Open Days, also known as the European Week of Regions and Cities. This event involved a record 212 regions and cities from 33 countries. Organised by the Committee of the Regions and the European Commission, this fifth edition of Open Days brought together local, regional, national and EU politicians and decision-makers, policy experts and representatives of business, banking and civil society organisations. The seminars focussed on the new regional programmes for 2007-2013. The headline was: 'Making it happen: regions and cities deliver growth and jobs' and the goal was to explore new ideas for regional development and to improve the delivery of cohesion programmes.

11:14:32 Michel Delebarre (in FRENCH) saying that a lot of networks are presenting their achievements; that is to say, not only one city or one region on its own, but because they work with another region on the other side of the border, because they work in co-operation with three or four other European regions which have the same problems, the same concerns to deal with; they are providing the proof that everyday Europe, the Europe living through cities and regions, is a reality and it is an added value for the European Union and for the European way of doing things 00:00:31
