Cohesion policy is the main investment policy of the European Union, which contributes to creating new jobs, improving the quality of life of citizens, and increasing the overall economic development of both the Member States and the EU as a whole. It is also an expression of solidarity, given that the support is directed to less developed regions and EU Member States – with the aim of strengthening the Union’s economic, social and territorial cohesion. Representatives of the Ministry of European Integrations, international experts and representatives of two national associations – Serbian Association of Regional Development Agencies – SARRA and Standing Conference of Towns and Municipalities, association of local authorities will discuss perspectives and instruments of territorial cohesion.
