EU - Colombia cooperation on regional policy

A new international cooperation agreement between the EU and Colombia on regional and urban policy was confirmed following the signature on 11 June 2015 in Brussels of a Letter of Intent by Commissioner Corina Creţu and María Ángela Holguín, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Colombia.

The dialogue concerns exchanges of experiences and good practices in policies concerned with promoting economic, social and territorial cohesion, which are of great importance for the post-conflict situation in Colombia. The dialogue will also cover policies in the field of innovation and technological development; cross-border, transnational and interregional cooperation; development policies in post-conflict situations; the setting up and implementation of regional and cross-border development and integration policies, including the strengthening of administrative capacity, in particular at regional and local level; issues relating to decentralization and multi-level governance; issues relating to sustainable economic development and to corporate social responsibility at territorial level.
