"Mr President, I would like to talk about the Sommer report and the way in which it promotes and affects the future of enlargement. I would like to make it clear from the outset that we agree with what the Commission says in its communication with regard to the impact enlargement will have on regions directly bordering candidate countries, and we fully support Mr Sommer’s report, which has the merit of accurately identifying the specific problems facing these border regions, problems which they will have to address quickly because of their proximity to countries which are still very far off achieving European economic standards. We also fully support the amendment we have tabled, which has been adopted by the Committee on Regional Policy, Transport and Tourism, calling upon the Commission to undertake to provide a clearer, more exhaustive definition of a ‘border region’, duly allowing for both land and sea borders, which takes into account changes in the Union’s political priorities as well."@en1
