The European Commission has published the first study to weigh up the success of the EU's two macro-regional strategies and to provide recommendations for the future.

Commenting on the report, EU Commissioner for Regional Policy, Johannes Hahn, said: “Today's study shows the clear value of our macro regional strategies. Their intensified cooperation has resulted in literally hundreds of new projects and new networks in the Danube and the Baltic regions. Above all, participants tell us that cooperation – including with non EU member states has been significantly strengthened."
