Kick-off conference of the EU Alpine macro-regional strategy in Slovenia
Commissioner for Regional Policy Corina Creţu and Commissioner for Transport Violeta Bulc are participating to the Launch Conference of the EU Strategy for the Alpine Region (EUSALP). With the Strategy, over 70 million citizens will jointly address the economic, social and territorial challenges existing in the Alpine Macro-Region. The EUSALP focuses strongly on stimulating an innovative and sustainable growth model; the 7 countries of the macro-region will be able to step up a gear in their cooperation in the fields of research and innovation, SME support, mobility, tourism, environmental protection and energy resource management.
This event, co-organised by the Commission and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Slovenia, brings together key stakeholders involved in the governance and implementation of the EUSALP, offering them the opportunity to express their views and ideas on the best working methods and efficient management of the Strategy.
