At a time of challenges for Europe, the issue of the relations between national governments and regions is being redefined. Regional policy has been a vital part of EU strategy for closer economic integration, inclusive growth and social cohesion. At the same time, decentralisation has evolved into a strong trend in managing not only regional and local issues but also national ones.

Are these developments under threat due to the recent nationalist approaches in European and global politics?

The need to rethink the role of regional governance and interregional cooperation in the European economic and social landscape is more than obvious.

Can regions become pioneers in innovative, knowledge-led, environmentally friendly growth strategies?
What relations should they have with the central administration in fields such as taxation, social policy and investment funding? 

It is against this setting that The Economist Events have great pleasure in announcing the organisation of the conference entitled “Governance and Regional Arteries for Growth: Europe's momentum-Greece's impetus” to take place in Wyndham Loutraki Poseidon Resort, Greece on Μay 10th-11th 2018

Prominent EU officials, cabinet ministers, regional governors from Greece and other European countries as well as international and Greek business and financial leaders will once again take part in this stimulating dialogue to brainstorm, openly debate and put forward new proposals on the issues that the conference will be covering.
