Press conference: Key indicators on national, regional and local government in the EU
Dexia and the Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR) will be hosting a joint press conference on 20 December 2006 in Brussels, to present the latest financial and other data concerning local and regional government in Europe.
Around 1,400 billion euros, 12.7% of Europe's GDP : Europe's 90,000 towns and regions play a vital role in their citizens' everyday life ; they are also a key economic actor whose role is being enhanced by ever-greater decentralization. As the most important public investor (some two thirds of all public investment), local and regional government lead the way in terms of financing infrastructures and public utilities.
The press conference will be chaired by Bruno Deletré, Director Public Finance - Dexia group, and Jeremy Smith, CEMR Secretary general. They will present:
  • The latest annual conjuncture note: « Local and regional finances in the EU - 2000-2005 »
  • A set of factsheets detailing key data on EU's member states (local and regional structures, structural and cohesion funds, economic activity, public sector financial aspects, town twining...).
