At 8:30 am (Lisbon time) on 18 May, an Informal Meeting of European Union (EU) Ministers responsible for Cohesion Policy will take place. Chaired by the Portuguese Minister for Planning, Nelson de Souza, under the auspices of the Portuguese Presidency of the Council of the EU, the meeting will also be attended by the European Commissioner for Cohesion and Reforms, Elisa Ferreira.
During the video conference, the Ministers will focus on the Cohesion Policy and analyse ways of maximising synergies and complementarities with the National Recovery and Resilience Plans at an operational level. One of the goals of the Portuguese Presidency of the Council of the EU is to find ways of coordinating these two Community instruments, which help to strengthen the economic, social and territorial cohesion of Europe.
