In the framework of processes aimed at reducing internal economic and social disparities, and the promotion of cross-border cooperation, the Ministry of External Relations of the Republic of Colombia and the Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy of the European Commission face similar challenges in reaching a more balanced territorial and urban development.

The regional policy of the European Union, which supports regional and sector specific strategic investment in economic, social and environmental development, together with urban policy which supports the development of sustainable cities, are important factors in helping less favoured regions to address such challenges. Likewise collaborative work is undertaken by neighbouring countries in support of the development of their common border regions,

The Ministry of External Relations of the Republic of Colombia and the Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy of the European Commission hereby envisage to establish a dialogue on cooperation on regional and urban policy and cross-border integration. The dialogue aims to promote mutual understanding and enhance bilateral co-operation and the exchange of information on regional and urban policy. It also aims to establish communication channels so as to strengthen the exchange of information.
