Chaired by Committee of the Regions President Karl-Heinz LAMBERTZ and Congress President Gudrun MOSLER-TÖRNSTRÖM, the participants will take stock of on-going cooperation, including the activities of the Conference of Regional and Local Authorities for the Eastern Partnership (CORLEAP) and the Euro-Mediterranean Regional and Local Assembly (ARLEM); decentralisation in Ukraine, the EU enlargement process, as well as the fight against corruption. The two bodies will revise modalities of their cooperation agreement and identify thematic and political priorities for 2018.
