The CBC action focused on the European Framework Convention on the cross-border cooperation between Regions and/or Spanish territorial authorities.
No specific obstacle for this activity. For general obstacles to CBC, please check the contributor's page.
1. The committment was reflected by the development and implementation of the Framework Convention signed by Spain, consisting of two separate bilateral treaties:
- Treaty with the French Republic on cooperation across borders, (Bayonne, March 10, 1995), known as the Treaty of Bayonne.
- Treaty with the Portuguese Republic on cooperation across borders, (Valencia, October 3, 2002), known as the Treaty of Valencia.
2. After these treaties there was an adaptation, through Royal Decree 1317/1997, to simplify the procedure for handling projects and cross-border cooperation agreements, which was previously as an “express agreement” of the State for cooperation projects.
3. In order to facilitate compliance with the aforesaid Royal Decree 1317/1997, agreements were undersigned in 1997 between the State and the Autonomous Regions with the local councils integrated in the Conference for Affairs Related to the European Union (CARUE) and the National Commission for Local Authorities, with the introduction of certain procedural rules regarding the submission of the project to be notified in advance, and in order to overcome objections of the State.
4. Presence of a multi-lateral cooperation and collaboration body, the Conference for Affairs Relating to the European Union, whose main purpose of its Annual Action Plan is monitoring and assessing the implementation of the agreements on cross-border cooperation and presentating of new proposals for cooperation in this regard from Regions or Local Authorities, including the provision of information on updates and possible regulatory changes on cross-border cooperation.
