Poreba: Strategy for the Carpathian Region is possible

On Tuesday MEP Tomasz Poręba organised a conference on the macro-regional strategy for the Carpathian Region.

On Tuesday MEP Tomasz Poręba organised a conference on the macro-regional strategy for the Carpathian Region. The event was attended by representatives of the European Commission, Committee of the Regions, Lithuanian Presidency as well as ministries and local governments.

The Carpathian area is a coherent area that requires particular EU attention and coordinated support within a European framework. The Carpathian Region is one of the EU’s poorest regions with many challenges – particularly related to infrastructure and employment. “The region wrestles with significant demographic changes due to its high unemployment rate as well as with several other problems as, e.g. environmental pollution, deforestation and lack of infrastructure”, stressed Poreba.

MEP Poreba underlined that the Carpathian Region had not been included within any area of interest in the European Parliament.

“There are strategies for the Danube, for the Baltic See and there are works upon strategies for the Ionian See and the Adriatic See. I hope that there will also be time for the Carpathian Region and its separate strategy”, said Poreba.

The MEP said that Tuesday’s conference constituted another important step towards the strategy after the first Carpathian debate that was held in the European Parliament a few weeks ago.
