16 Border Regions with borders to German neighbour States were for the first time jointly presented at the Euregia Fair in Leipzig.  Some years ago, these members of AEBR have formed a working group, which deals with various topics of cross-border cooperation. In addition to the stand at the fair, also three thematic fora were held, which attracted more than 150 participants. The fora dealt with the design of European funding initiatives in so-called small project funds, the legal instrument 'European Grouping for Territorial Cooperation (EGTC)' and the creation and improvement of transeuropean infrastructure.

In this regards, the cooperation with Regio Pamina is worth to be mentioned in particular. Regio Pamina organised the workshop on small project funds in close cooperation with AEBR. The participants expressed their satisfaction with the Fair and the thematic fora. Neben einer Vielzahl von Anfragen am Messestand konnten neue Kontakte geknüpft werden und die Arbeit zwischen den Grenzregionen wurde intensiviert.
