The CPMR seeks to influence the way EU policies are shaped so that they take greater account of the regional dimension and the problems experienced in the peripheral areas of Europe.

In this section you can read the latest editions of the CPMR Newsletters, gathering news articles from the CPMR and its Geographical Commissions on our wide-ranging actions and activities on behalf of our member regions.
