The MOT elects its new president at the General Assembly in Nice

Some 130 people gathered in Nice and Ventimiglia on 22-23 May 2018 for the MOT's General Assembly. The unanimously-elected new president, Robert Herrmann, thanked the Nice-Côte d'Azur Metropolis, a member of the MOT since 2012, for hosting the assembly in this "city that is emblematic of France's international standing, but also of its profoundly European history".

The meetings of the MOT's different bodies made it possible to validate the activity and financial reports, as well as the 2018-2020 work programme, to elect the new representatives of the MOT's board, and to present the new members. The Technicians' Platform focused on the new interactive tool that has been available to them since the start of the year: an online forum. During the discussions, the representative of the European Commission, Ana-Paula Laissy, Head of Unit in DG REGIO, replied to the many questions from the participants about the future generation of ETC programmes, the legislative framework of which is currently under discussion (read the article).

In concluding the meetings of the MOT's bodies, Christina Bezes-Feldmeyer, representing Hugo Bevort, Director of Territorial Strategies at the General Commission for Territorial Equality, recalled that the next "Conference on the Territories organised by the French government will have Europe as its central theme. Supported by the Minister for Territorial Cohesion, Jacques Mézard, we are arguing for the right to experiment in these cross-border territories, which are pre-eminent places of European construction".

The following day, the two roundtables held in Ventimiglia centred on cooperation between France, Italy and Monaco (read the article).
