CoR Press Release - "Regions and cities warn Member states that Europe 2020 does not have the means to deliver on its promises"

On 3 March 2010 the European Commission proposed Europe 2020 – A strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. The European Council is now requested to endorse the strategy's overall approach and the EU headline targets and to give its final approval to the strategy. However some important issues relevant to local and regional authorities still remain open in the strategy. It is crucial that they are adequately addressed before final adoption (June European Council).

In March 2010, CoR launched a follow-up Consultation "Your voice on Europe 2020".

The proposal put forward in the European Commission's Communication "EUROPE 2020. A European Strategy for smart, green and inclusive growth" meets to a large extent some key issues CoR has been requesting, giving a constructive answer to the Own Initiative Opinion the CoR adopted in its Plenary Session on 3-4 December 2009, as well as to some of the "Questions on the future of the Lisbon Strategy" which emerged from the CoR Consultation of European Regions and Cities on a New Strategy for Sustainable Growth carried out earlier in 2009. After the 5th Territorial Dialogue, held on 18 January 2010, these issues were summarized in a joint letter by the CoR President and the Spanish Council Presidency the European Council President Herman Van Rompuy.
