Hiroshi Tanaka, professor in the Faculty of Economics of Ritsuemaikan University in Kyoto, Japan, has published a study on macro-regional strategies with a focus on the EUSDR. As a professor and researcher with an interest in regional cooperation, Tanaka is working on a research project concerning the GMS (Greater Mekong Sub-region) Development Plan. Tanaka and a team of Japanese researchers visited INTERACT Point Vienna in the fall of 2013 to learn more about the EUSDR and see how the best practices of the Strategy could be applied in the Greater Mekong Sub-region. The report, titled ‘EU Macro-Region Strategies: A study of EU Strategy for the Danube Region’ is currently only available in Japanese but includes an abstract in English.
