On 5 July, 2018 the Romanian Regional Science Association organised, in partnership with the Bucharest-Ilfov Regional Development Agency, a special meeting with Dr. Mircea Enache, the President of the International Urban Alliance, U.S., who delivered the presentation entitled „The Plan Proposed by International Urban Alliance for the Metropolitan Washington”.

It was followed by a presentation of the Regional Operational Programme-REGIO – 2007- 2013 accomplishments and 2014-2020 perspectives for the Bucharest-Ilfov Development Region.

The event took place in the exquisite Patriarchy Palace in Bucharest, whose renovation was supported by a REGIO project, co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
