It is in the heart of the European district, at the Brussels Press Club Europe, that AER met on 29 January 2013 the directors and official representatives of Italian regions. AER presented the Italian regions with its projects and key activities and events for 2013. This opportunity to share our planning schedules, expectations and respective needs for 2013 will lead to new synergies with our member regions (i.e.: Abruzzes, Valle d’Aosta, Bolzano, Basilicata, Trento, Trentino Alto Adige and Friulli Venezia Giulia), but also convince non-members to join us (i.e.: Lombardie, Toscane, Emilia-Romagna and Veneto). The Secretary General and his team explained the new strategy and were able to answer questions. AER President Michele Sabban will have in Italy, in the coming weeks, a political level meeting, with the Presidents of the regions.
