Conference goal

European aim for social and regional convergence is signified and carried out through increasingly assertive efforts by the European Union for local and regional development. The Lisbon Treaty outlines the exigencies of the increased regional role. The local and regional development are decisive factors that enhance development prospects of European Union member states. The creation of a viable developmental model with comparative, competitive advantages presupposes the backing for the institutional role of local communities and authorities at the local and regional administration level.
