Following in the footsteps of the forums of 2010 and 2012, this year's gathering will bring together hundreds of participants, including experts and representatives from the outermost regions and the countries concerned, as well as from the EU institutions and interest groups and stakeholders.

The event will take place at the dawn of a new era for several key institutions of the European Union and at a moment when the Europe-wide priorities of EU Cohesion Policy for 2014-2020 are being translated into investment priorities through strategic Partnership Agreements, programmes and plans in the Member States.

The challenge, in this context is to ensure the strategy is geared towards the specific needs of the Outermost Regions, to allow them also to play their part in meeting EU objectives and continuing on the path to sustainable development.

Business partners from across the EU will also be invited to offer the outermost regions a platform for showcasing their unique selling points on the basis of the strategic axes developed in their action plans.
