The European Groupings of Territorial Cooperation: Cross-border players in the Single Market

"The European Groupings of Territorial Cooperation are genuine laboratories of the Single Market. These public entities operate simultaneously in several countries", explains Mr Herwig Van Staa (AT/EPP). "Their experience is precious to know what has to be improved".

More than 200 participants, including representatives of some of the 41 existing EGTC, met the European Commission and national authorities to explain their experiences and exploit the possibilities of the Single Market Act. The EGTCs hire personnel from different nationalities, sometimes in offices that are located in two or more countries; they can implement and manage infrastructure and provide cross-border services.

The participants sought the engagement of the European Commission to deliver their experience and to make their potential visible.
