Toward stronger synergies and closer connections between ALDA and Brussels Liaison offices

Oct 24, 2012

Good governance

ALDA organised a meeting with the liaison offices of its members that are based in Brussels, aimed to create stronger synergies and closer connections with them.
Attended the meeting representatives of the Liaison Office Antenne Interrégionale Auvergne-Centre-Limousin (F), Apulia Region (I), Romanian Association of Cities (RO), Autonomous Province of Trento – EuRegio (I), Friuli Venezia Giulia Region (I), Région Basse-Normandie (F), Sicily Region (I), City of Kragujevac (SRB), City of Nis (SRB). All participants were positive about the idea that ALDA will work more closely with the liaison offices.

ALDA will organise in the future regular meetings for the Brussels Liaison offices of ALDA members. Such meetings will be organised every second month, but the meetings could be held more often if there are specific issues to discuss. Liaison offices are encouraged to suggest possible themes and topics that could be discussed at these meetings. ALDA will also invite external guests (eg. from the Commission or think-tanks) to give input if there are specific issues on the agenda that would benefit from the participation of external guests.
The next meeting will be held in the first half of December.
