(ANSA) - KLAGENFURT, NOV 25 - Even during the pandemic and other emergencies, such as that of the fires, "Friuli Venezia Giulia, Veneto and Austria cooperated effectively" and proved that "the border between our territories, by now, is only administrative." FVG Regional Councillor for Agri-Food Resources Forestry and Mountains Stefano Zannier said today at a ceremony celebrating the tenth anniversary of the founding of the European Group for Territorial Cooperation 'Euregio Without Borders,' of which the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region, the Veneto Region and the Land of Carinthia are members. " "The most important achievement of the EGTC Euregio has been to make different territories with different regulatory systems cooperate by pooling skills and experience to manage complex situations in the best possible way," Zannier added.

Territories, those of the EGTC, once upon a time ravaged by war, which today instead represent a model of cooperation at the European level, also remarked the governor of the Austrian state of Carinthia, Peter Kaiser. This position was shared by European Commissioner Johannes Hahn, who called the EGCT Euregio Without Borders a model of "best practice" in Europe. Furthermore, Veneto's regional councilor for Budget and Heritage, Francesco Calzavara, underlined the importance of investing in joint projects, such as cross-border cycle routes. (ANSA).
