(3) Inter-Regional Activities: The Fourth Conference on Mediterranean Regions

At the 4th Conference of Mediterranean Regions on 5 July, the Standing Committee of the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of Europe recommended, inter alia, that the Committee of Ministers adopt a coherent Mediterranean policy and develop the Mediterranean dimension of the European Centre for Global Interdependence and Solidarity, established in Lisbon, by strengthening the TRANSMED information centre. The Parliamentary Assembly was invited to cooperate with the Congress in organising the 5th Conference of Mediterranean Regions, which was to be held in Montpellier in 1998. The Congress recommended that member states promote transfrontier and inter-authority cooperation, especially in population and migration matters and in the combating of intolerance, xenophobia, and racism, as well as in those concerning the preservation and management of water and forestry resources.
