Territorial cooperation in the Mediterranean through the Adriatic-Ionian macro-region

The Committee of the Regions has recently published an opinion on Territorial cooperation in the Mediterranean through the Adriatic-Ionian macro-region. In this document, the CoR “stresses that the macroregional strategy cannot operate in all areas, but must focus on challenges and issues of this particular macroregion that the partners identify in a joint assessment; it notes that, being functional areas, macroregions have no predefined borders, but are very much shaped by the shared challenges chosen to be tackled”. 
The CoR also “recalls that the European Commission’s ‘three no’s’ (no new regulation, no new institutions and no additional funding) should be matched by ‘three yeses’: application and monitoring of existing rules in the macroregion, creation of a platform, network or EGTC and agreed use of existing Union funding.EN C 9/8 Official Journal of the European Union 11.1.2012”
