The 2nd meeting of the Joint Programming Committee

On 23 November 2020, the 2nd meeting of the Joint Programming Committee (JPC) on the preparation of Latvia-Russia Cross-Border Cooperation Programme for the period of 2021-2027 welcomed online the National Authorities of the Republic of Latvia and the Russian Federation, the representatives of the European Commission, TESIM, and the participating cross-border regions, and consultants to discuss the development of the new Programme for the coming period of 2021-2027.

The Programme developers are looking at every opportunity to involve a broad expert society into thematic discussions and strategical planning of the new Programme ­­­– to provide for a multifaceted look at post-2020 legal framework, data sources and methodology for strategy development, as well as Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) issues.

The third draft of the Programme document, following the amendments for Interreg programmes, was presented and discussed. The dialogue was supported by substantive questions and hands-on consultations from experts and advisors from the EU and participating countries.

To conclude, the JPC participants agreed on the next steps of Programme preparation and approved the list of decisions regarding further JPC work.

We would like to thank all JPC participants for their hard and fruitful work, which helps Latvia-Russia cross-border area look into the future with hope and confidence!
