New models of state-regional governance?

The Government organized its first meeting with the Association of Regions. The Association of Regions gathers representatives of all regions in the Czech Republic. The aim of the meeting was to primarily discuss the use of the EU-funds money on expenditures that are administrated by the Regions. Further, the talks included also funding of regional health service, education, public transport. The Association appreciates the pace of the communication with the Government (soon after the vote of confidence, the Government invoked the meeting). As the result of the talks, both sides confessed their willingness to keep such meetings on regular basis (there should be one further meeting discussing the preparation of the state budget for 2015). In addition to that, both sides accomplished the model of communication that enables two-way flow of information.
