Guadiana Eurocity gains access to European funding

The Guadiana Eurocity, which comprises the Algarve boroughs of Castro Marim and Vila Real de Santo António and the Spanish municipality of Ayamonte, has received the legal recognition it needs to be granted European funding or manage cross-border projects.

The three towns have been named a European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation (EGTC), which allows public entities of different EU member states to come under a new entity with full legal personality.
