Aims
The Economy Group gathers practitioners involved in the implementation of economic development policies, in order to establish permanent channels of information and exchange of best practices and, through this, to support the economic growth of their territories and to enhance the role of regions in the future success of the European economy. The group has been meeting regularly since 1992, with the participation of the Associate members. Joint missions, insitutional and technical, have been organised regularly since 2002. The group also encourages the organisation of common actions (exhibitions, events, etc.), special projects, and supervises the different economic working groups.
