enpmap-web-bigO xoves (28 de maio), membros da Asemblea Rexional e Local Euromediterránea (ARLEM) reuníronse co comisario de política de veciñanza e ampliación, Johannes Hahn, para discutir a revisión en curso da Política Europea de Veciñanza (PEV).

The exchange of views took place during the Bureau meeting of ARLEM in Brussels.  Markku Markkula, ARLEM co-president and president of the European Committee of the Regions (CoR), summarized: “In our view, the European Neighbourhood Policy should stress further strategic priorities: democratic governance including decentralization, and sustainable territorial development. ENP and objectives undertaken by the Union for the Mediterranean need to complement each other. Greater synergies with the European development policy and the agenda for migration, as well as with other structural policies and financial instruments, can bring considerable added value”. President Markkula also reiterated ARLEM’s call to “enable public administration at local level to implement reforms, through training exercises and EU’s facilities aiming to enhance capacity building, such as a revisited Local Administration Facility”.

Os copresidentes de ARLEM, Markkula e Hani Abdalmasih Al Hayek, tamén tiveron a oportunidade de presentar as súas opinións á alta representante da UE para asuntos exteriores e política de seguridade, Federica Mogherini, durante o Foro da Sociedade Civil-Barrio Sur co-organizado polo CoR o Xoves.

Al Hayek, Mayor of Beit Sahour (Palestine), recalled that “major conflicts and unprecedented migration flows are seriously impacting the balance of relations in the Mediterranean region. In this difficult time, it is particularly important that we call on the EU and the international community to provide local and regional authorities on the ground with the necessary resources to cope with these situations and assist the victims”.

Addressing the local and regional representatives from the Mediterranean partner countries and EU, Commissioner Hahn said: “It is our intention to have the broadest possible consultation on the European Neighbourhood Policy reform. The contribution of regional and local initiatives and communities is crucial if we want to strengthen the bottom-up approach in our reformed ENP. Initiatives such as ARLEM serve as bridge and platform to involve the citizens”. The Bureau of ARLEM adopted a position paper on the European Neighbourhood Policy review, feeding into the consultation process launched by the commissioner and Mogherini.

Tamén se decidiu que a próxima sesión plenaria de ARLEM se organizase en Nicosia, Chipre, en xaneiro de 2016.
