Seventh report on economic, social and territorial cohesionNovember 2017
This report assesses the current state of economic, social and territorial cohesion in the European Union. Following the economic crisis, there are signs of a recovery in Europe, but regional disparities persist between Member States between regions within the same country.
Cross-border cooperation occupies a significant place in the report. In spite of the elimination of many institutional and regulatory obstacles, borders still represent barriers to the free movement of people, goods, services, capital and ideas. The elimination of these barriers could stimulate economic growth and improve access to services in these regions, and would also help the European economies to take full advantage of regional integration.
