The Recovery plan for Europe must take local and regional authorities on board to be effective in tackling the consequences of the crisis. A centralised approach, with decisions taken t op-down, risks to create overlaps or even competition among funding tools. This could undermine the impact of the new Recovery and Resilience Facility. Members of the European Committee of the Regions (CoR) shared these concerns in a debate with EU Commissioner for Economy, Paolo Gentiloni. Their views and their improvement proposals will feed into an opinion adopted by the Plenary.
