The EU Strategy for the Danube Region (EUSDR) has entered the crucial phase of implementation. At the 1st Annual EUSDR Forum on 28th/29th November 2012 in Regensburg, it was identified that the structures for the eleven focus areas have been established with the respective coordinators and the specific work on campaigns and projects has begun.
The core purpose of the EU Strategy for the Danube Region is to bring lasting peace, democratic governance, legal security, a clean environment, prosperity, education and social justice to the citizens living along the Danube.
The cities and regions are already committed to implementation of the EUSDR through an array of cross-border and trans-national projects. In accordance with the principle of the EUSDR of not creating new institutions, the Council of Danube Cities and Regions plays an active role in this process, as a concentration to strengthen regional and municipal forces is imperative for the continued development of the EU.
In this context, the 7th European Conference of the Danube Cities and Regions will be held in Bucharest, on the 27th and 28th of October 2013, organized in the margin of the 2nd Annual Forum of the EU Strategy for the Danube Region.
The cities and regions on the Danube fully support the European Commission – DG Regio and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Romania in their joint endeavor to organize the 2nd Annual Forum of the EU Strategy for the Danube Region.
We look forward to welcoming you in Bucharest.
