Vasco Cordeiro attends meeting of Presidents of the Outermost Regions on the eve of the European Council on Community budget


The President of the Government will take part, by video conference, in the meeting of the Conference of Presidents of the Outermost Regions (CPOR), scheduled for Wednesday, which intends to adopt a joint position on the next multiannual financial framework of the European Union for the 2021-2027 period.

This meeting of the Presidents of the Portuguese, French and Spanish Outermost Regions, representing almost five million European citizens, takes place on the eve of the summit of heads of state and government of the European Union. It aims to reach an agreement on the next Community budget, which includes a 750 billion Euro fund for the recovery of the European economy following the COVID-19 pandemic.

At the Wednesday meeting, the nine Presidents of the Outermost Regions - Azores, Madeira, Canary Islands, Guadeloupe, Guyana, Martinique, Réunion, Mayotte and Saint-Martin - will analyse this topic and participate in debates with the President of the European Parliament's Committee on Regional Development, Younous Omarjee, and with the European Commissioner for Cohesion and Reforms, Elisa Ferreira.

CPOR is a political cooperation structure that brings together the presidents of the executive bodies of the Outermost Regions.

The Regional Government has held the rotating presidency of the Conference of Presidents of the Outermost Regions on three occasions, the last of which between 2011 and 2012, the year when the Outermost Regions' meeting took place on the island of Faial and was attended by the then Commissioner for Regional Policy, Johannes Hahn.

The Conference Presidency will be held by the Region again from November 2020 for a period of one year.

It should be noted that the nine European Outermost Regions are recognised as having a specific status, as defined in article 349 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, due to its structural and permanent characteristics, such as its remoteness, insularity, economic constraints arising from their small size, rough relief or harsh climate.
