Four Motors for Europe

ACHIEVING MORE TOGETHER

Four Motors for Europe

Since 1988, Baden-Württemberg has enjoyed growing relationships with Catalonia, Lombardy and Rhône-Alpes as part of the "Four Motors for Europe" network. Flanders and Wales are associated members of the same network, and Baden-Württemberg also takes part in the "Four Motors for Mercosur" partnership with Paraná (Brazil), Córdoba (Argentina), Rivera (Uruguay) and Alto Paraná (Paraguay), which is itself modelled on the "Four Motors for Europe".

The European Union has changed significantly since the "Four Motors for Europe" was set up. The role played by this partnership has consequently changed as well. Today, the network concentrates on ensuring that its members have a strong voice amid the hubbub of lobbyists in Brussels and in the context of global competition. The "Four Motors for Europe" benefit from the excellent reputation they have acquired over the years and from the fact that they represent four large regions with strong economies which are able to attract more attention by working together. The EXPO 2015 will be held in the partner region of Lombardy and will offer the four motor regions a unique opportunity to present their cooperation to an international public.
