"QUOTE..." (November 15, 2002) At the Third Conference of Presidents of Regions with Legislative Power, Florence (Italy), the European Commissioner for Regional Policy and Institutional Reform called for greater participation of the regions in a process of institutional reform. "What project, what policies for an enlarged EU? In what ways can the regions be associated with, and participate in formulating (.) and implementing these policies?". These were some of the questions addressed Mr Barnier in his speech. "In an enlarged Europe, there will be (...) MORE INEQUALITIES AND DISPARITIES", the Commissioner pointed out. "Therefore, objectively, there will be a need for more economic, social and territorial cohesion policy". SEE INFOREGIO WEB SITE FOR THE COMPLETE TEXT.
