Press Release

Roman Línek, Deputy Pardubice Regional Council President (KDU-ČSL), has been elected chairman of the Czech national delegation to the European Committee of the Regions (ECOR) in Brussels this week and also became the new Vice-Chairman of this 350-member European authority. ECOR met from 5 to 6 December at this year’s last meeting.

The main points were detailed discussions with European Commissioners on topical issues of the Union. “With Commissioner Corina Cretu, we were discussing the terms of the future cohesion policy and with Commissioner Michel Barnier we were discussing the Brexit agreement. Unfortunately, this divorce treaty does not bring new values neither to Britain nor to the European Union, but it offers a way to minimize the overall losses,” Mr. Línek reports from Brussels.
ECOR consists of 350 representatives of European regions, cities and municipalities. It usually meets five times a year at two-day meetings and its mission is to defend regional interests at the European level. The Czech national delegation consists of six regional representatives, the Prague Mayor and five representatives of Czech towns and municipalities. Roman Línek has been representing the Czech Republic for a long time, in recent years he was one of two Czechs working in the ECOR presidency and he has been now elected chairman of the Czech national delegation and Vice Chairman of ECOR.
