High-level conference dedicated to the EU cohesion policy: post-2020 perspectives for convergence and sustainable regions

Location:National Palace of Culture, Sofia, Bulgaria

The event is scheduled within the framework of the Bulgarian Presidency of the Council of the EU. It will be the first public debate on the proposal for the Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) 2021-2027, which was announced in May.

The purpose of the conference is to enable the relevant stakeholders to convey their key messages regarding the future cohesion policy, taking into account the European Commission’s legislative proposals for cohesion policy and the MFF for 2021-2027. The discussions will be based on 3 panels:


  • The European added value of cohesion policy
  • The new EU budget – challenges and opportunities for cohesion policy after 2020
  • Risk and cost of non-cohesion of the EU regions


Commissioners and high-level officials of the European Commission, members of the European Parliament and the European Committee of the Regions, and ministers from the Member States will participate in the forum.
