Oct 07, 2019

The Regional Governor of Thessaly and President of the Association of Greek Regions, Mr Κostas Agorastos, made an intervention in Brussels on the continuation of the transnational Cooperation Programme Interreg V-B "Balkan-Mediterranean 2014-2020" in the next 2021-20127 Program Period. More specifically, Mr Agorastos expressed full support for continuation of this Program, which covers a very important region of South-Eastern Europe.

The BalkanMed Programme started its implementation in 2016 and has extremely high absorption and significant results. It is a unique tool that capitalizes on the experiences of the previous programming period.

The Association of Greek Regions supports this effort and is sure that its continuation and prolongation will contribute to the social inclusion and financial development of the Regions in the Balkan - Mediterranean basin.
