Once again, Mostra organised this year’s Forum of the EU Strategy for the Danube Region which took place from 28 to 29 October 2013 in Bucharest, Romania at the Palace of the Parliament. This 2nd annual forum was co-hosted by the Directorate General for Regional Policy and the Romanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The event proved a great success, attracting high-level political attention and welcoming some 900 participants over the course of the two days. Speakers included Victor Ponta, Prime Minister of Romania and Johannes Hahn, European Union Commissioner for Regional Policy among many other government representatives from both national and European level.
