On May 2018, the European Commission circulated legislative proposals on specific provisions for the European territorial cooperation goal (Interreg) supported by the European Regional Development Fund and external financing instruments for the next multi-annual financial framework for the period 2021-2027. These proposals were the beginning for discussions on the conditions for the implementation of the new cross-border cooperation programmes.
The Managing Authority of Latvia – Russia Cross-border Cooperation Programme 2014-2020, assisted by its branch offices in Russia, is coordinating the preparation of the new Programme Document for 2021-2027. Joint Programming Committee Delegates from Latvia and Russia are actively involved in the programming to steer the overall process and take decisions as Joint Programming Committee members.
The 1st Joint Programming Committee meeting and the 1st Task Force meeting have already taken place to progress with the Programme Document development, so we are getting ready to continue supporting cooperation among Latvia and Russia cross-border regions during the 2021-2027 programming period.
Stay tuned for further updates!
