On 16 and 17 June 2016, ESPON organized in Amsterdam a seminar entitled “Territory matters: Keeping Europe and its regions competitive”.
AEBR was represented by the chairman of the AEBR Advisory Committee Mr. Jens Gabbe. In Workshop C „Cross-border cooperation contributing to competitiveness“, he concentrated his remarks on possibilities to overcome or reduce border obstacles in the economy sector. Since legal solutions often take several years, he recommended to make practical suggestions for political actors and to regularly involve all economic and social actors, NGOs, etc. in order to create a sustainable and friendly climate for economy, trade and services, a climate which enables a real cross-border economic added value.
