Speaking at the annual conference of the Central Union of Municipalities of Greece (KEDE) in Thessaloniki on 3 December, Congress President Gudrun Mosler-Törnström welcomed closer co-operation between KEDE and the Congress and stressed the importance of strengthening consultations between local and central authorities, as well as local competences and financing, particularly for island municipalities. She expressed her hope that Greece and the Congress would soon enter into post-monitoring dialogue on these issues. “I appreciate the efforts of Greek local authorities to host and offer assistance to refugees and migrants, despite having minimum funding in this area,” said the President, adding: “You are on the frontline of the fight for the rights of municipalities.”
