Insufficient involvement of regions and cities in delivering the national recovery plans puts their effectiveness at risk

Representatives of Europe’s local and regional authorities have again voiced their concerns over the lack of sub-national involvement in the implementation, further planning and evaluation of the National Recovery and Resilience Plans. In an opinion drafted by Rob Jonkman (NL/ECR), Alderman of the municipality of Opsterland, the European Committee of the Regions (CoR) underlines that local and regional authorities are responsible for more than half of public investment in the EU and that the objectives of the EU’s €750 billion recovery package Next Generation EU can’t be reached without their involvement. The opinion was adopted by the CoR’s Commission for Economic Policy (ECON) on Wednesday following a debate with Maarten Verwey, European Commission’s Director-General for Economic and Financial Affairs (ECFIN).
