The 7th Joint Monitoring Committee meeting

On 18 September 2020, the 7th Joint Monitoring Committee (JMC) meeting took place online in Zoom. The JMC members from Latvia and Russia, experts from the European Commission and TESIM, and observers met to monitor the implementation of the Latvia-Russia CBC Programme and discuss plans for 2021.

This year has been quite challenging for all of us; therefore, it is delightful to observe the success of 4 DAPs and 17 regular projects working in the cross-border area of Latvia and Russia. The JMC participants learned about the progress of the projects in experience exchange, (re)construction, and training local population – improving business, cultural and environmental spheres of life in Latvia and Russia. The Programme experts also presented the results of support measures to the projects ensuring their sustainability and efficiency, including seminars and individual consultations, project monitoring, and many more. Brief information was provided on the next programming period preparation.

The experts from the European Commission and TESIM provided valuable input into the discussion of crucial documents, including solutions to current issues and plans for the next year. The JMC members discussed and approved a list of constitutive decisions regarding the implementation of the Programme.

We are happy to confirm that good teamwork can overcome any borders and distances and bring a positive and fruitful result for further mutually beneficial cooperation.
