The European Commission has invited top policy-makers from the 27 Member States to Brussels for the Fifth Cohesion Forum on January 31st and February 1st . The event will mark the end of the public consultation begun in November on cohesion policy after 2013. The 800 participants expected at the forum will discuss future policy directions and their important role in the implementation of the ‘Europe 2020’ strategy.

This year’s forum will be the last opportunity for Member States and regions to make their voices heard before the European Commission presents its first legislative proposals on the future of cohesion policy, due out by summer, 2011.
