The new European economic governance undoubtedly has and will further continue to spur closer cooperation and dialogue amongst all levels of government on the one hand, and societal partners on the other. In its Fifth Cohesion Report, the European Commission rightfully considered that RLAs should be involved in the process of drafting the PAs.
