Revision of the EUSDR Action Plan - Priority Area 8 "Competitiveness"
The EU Strategy for the Danube Region (EUSDR) addresses a wide range of thematic fields, which are divided among four pillars and twelve priority areas. The EUSDR Actions are pre-defined in the EUSDR Action Plan, aiming at moving “from words to actions”.
After eight years of implementation, the revision of the Action Plan became necessary/inevitable. The Bulgarian Presidency launched a consultation procedure with the aim to include as many relevant stakeholders as possible. For this reason five guidance questions were identified, which will serve as basis for further discussions.
The first draft of the Action Plan will be presented during the next PAC meeting which will take place on 22-23 January 2019 in Bucharest.

The current Actions of the PA 8 are:
• To foster cooperation and exchange of knowledge between SMEs, academia and the public sector in areas of competence in the Danube Region.
• To improve business support to strengthen the capacities of SMEs for cooperation and trade.
• To support enterprises through high performing training and qualification schemes.
• To prioritize the effective implementation of measures provided for under the Small Business Act for Europe.
• To improve the competitiveness of rural areas and in particular of the agricultural sector
• To eliminate cross border barriers and bottlenecks to people and business -Seamless Europe for a livable Danube Region.
• To improve framework conditions for SMEs in areas where infrastructure is missing
