The seminar will address the analysis, from a practical perspective, of two of the relevant practices highlighted at the financing level. The first of them deals with a question with extensive experience (the delegation of powers for the management and collection of taxes by small municipalities), while the second relevant practice addresses a current issue (the implementation of funds related to the Next Generation EU), although there is a wide previous experience in the implementation of other types of funds from the European Union.
At the local level, the implementation of Next Generation EU funds must pay different attention to the different types of municipalities and, at the same time, not exacerbate the financial differences between urban and rural municipalities. This plan should fulfill a dual simultaneous function: rebalancing local finances of all municipalities, insofar as all of them have been affected by the COVID-19 crisis and creating new opportunities to make rural areas more attractive places to live and work. In this framework, we intend to assess whether the Next Generation EU may rebalance the growing economic and financial gap between rural and urban areas.
The Workshop will take place online on June 30, 2021, at 16:00 hours. For further information regarding the event please see the link below:
