Institutional welcoming

The region of La Rioja is holding an international seminar of the European Committee of the RegionsEste enlace se abrirá en una ventana nueva, organised by the SEDEC Committee that I chair. We will host regional representatives from across the European Union to seek and agree on effective and efficient solutions to a common challenge of European territories: the demographic challenge.

This is a territorial and social challenge, which calls for a multilevel leadership and an integral agenda, to define policies for the citizens and for the development and life of our rural areas.

We welcome you to our open, friendly, modern and diverse region and wish you a fruitful work, for the benefit of an inclusive and sustainable development of Europe and its regions.

Presidente de la Comunidad Autónoma de La Rioja
