SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, Nov. 24 (EUROPA PRESS) –
About twenty parliaments and assemblies from Spain, Germany, Italy, Austria, Portugal, Finland and Belgium will participate this Friday, at the headquarters of the Parliament of the Canary Islands, in the meetings of the Permanent Committee and Plenary Assembly of the Conference of Regional Legislative Assemblies of Europe (CALRE) under the presidency of Gustavo Matos.
The working session will begin at 10:00 am with the opening ceremony where representatives of different European institutions, national and regional institutions will participate.
The coordinators of the working groups will then present the activity reports and advance their proposals for 2022.
Likewise, the presidency of CALRE for next year will be addressed and the candidatures received will be put to a vote.
The president of CALRE and the Parliament of the Canary Islands, Gustavo Matos, highlights the “enormous opportunity” that this presidency has represented for the Canary Islands in these last two years and values the importance that the archipelago has contributed its vision as an outermost region to the construction of the European project.
“We have been able to make the issues of the Canary Islands visible at an important time for the European Union and the specificities of the islands can today be understood a little better,” he says.
