The 2011 Annual General Meeting of the Mission Opérationnelle Transfrontalière (MOT) took place on 16 June at Reims (France), on the invitation of the Champagne Ardenne Region, member of MOT for several years.
Chaired by Michel DELEBARRE,a Conference-Debate was organized the day before, on 15 June 2011 focusing on the subject of cross-border cooperation: from national strategies to territorial projects.In this Conference, Marie Therese Sanchez Schmidt from The European Parliament, mentioned that Atlantic and Danube are macro-regions in the making. Although the structure EGTC may seem appropriate, it is not ready yet and is too heavy. The main aim to be achieved is to provide mechanisms for participation of civil society in these integrated strategies while symplifying procedures.
