Transatlantic Cooperation Task Force
The Task Force was created at the Atlantic Arc Commission (AAC) General Assembly held in Pamplona (Navarra-Spain), on June 2016 at the initiative of the Basque Country.
Its key objectives are:
- Collecting information on existing cooperation between European and American local authorities or socio-economic stakeholders;
- Starting a reflection on ways to reinforce institutional links between regions on both sides of the Atlantic, for example through the internationalization of the Atlantic Maritime Strategy;
- Identifying cooperation possibilities with the regions of the American continent in topics of common interest;
- Identifying funding opportunities for cooperation projects.
