The Committee of Regions points out in this opinion that European integration can be seen first and foremost at borders. In its opinion the Committee suggests that the discussions currently taking place regarding the design of cohesion policy after 2020 offer an excellent opportunity to bring forward some new proposals for EU support for building missing infrastructure in border regions. In accordance with the subsidiarity principle, the most appropriate solution would be to enable this infrastructure (including small-scale infrastructure) to be funded as part of the cross-border cooperation programmes (Interreg A) and to increase the resources allocated to it accordingly.
