SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, Jan. 26 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The president of the Parliament of the Canary Islands and vice-president of the Conference of Regional Legislative Assemblies of the EU (CALRE), Gustavo Matos, attends this Friday in Wallonia (Belgium) the first meeting that the Permanent Committee celebrates this year.
Last December, Matos’ second term at the head of CALRE ended. In the meeting of the plenary assembly held in the Parliament of the Canary Islands, Jean-Claude Marcourt, president of the Parliament of Wallonia, was elected new president for this 2022.
Gustavo Matos, member of the Permanent Committee in his capacity as Vice President, will present to this body the work plan of the Migration Policies group, of which he is coordinator during this term.
As CALRE has been defending, an effective response to the migratory phenomenon must start from Europe’s own founding values. It also underlines the crucial role of European regions in this regard, especially those whose geographical location is strategic.
The meeting of the Permanent Committee of CALRE, which will be held at the headquarters of the Parliament of Wallonia, city of Namur, will begin at 10:30 am (local time) with the opening session by the president of CALRE. Then the different delegations, representatives of different European institutions will intervene and, among other issues, the work plans of each of the groups of the Conference will be presented.
