ALDA taking part in the 5th annual meeting of CORLEAP in Brussels
On 23rd of April 2015 the 5th annual meeting of the Conference of the Regional and Local authorities for the Eastern Partnership – CORLEAP took place in Brussels, Belgium. Our Secretary General Antonella Valmorbida and Project Manager and Eastern Partnership Coordinator Elzbieta Horoszko took part in the annual plenary meeting representing ALDA and its values.
Mrs. Antonella Valmorbida stressed the importance of the work on local governance in the framework of the EAP as a milestone for development and democracy. Most of the participants were aware of ALDA’s work in the EaP as a major stakeholder in local governance. All participants consider decentralization as a cross cutting element throughout the region representing a key of success for development and democracy.
The programme of the Conference focused on preparing the EaP Riga summit and raising the voice of the Local government in this perspective. Also, the European Commission programme “Municipal lagship initiative for local development” has been further presented and will be operational soon.
