For the political dialogue with the local and regional authorities in the enlargement countries the CoR created so called joint consultative committees (JCC) and working group (WG).

There are currently three Joint Consultative Committees (JCC) and two Working Groups (WG) in existence in the Committee of the Regions:

  1. JCC between the CoR and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.
  2. JCC between the CoR and Montenegro
  3. JCC between the CoR and Iceland
  4. Working Group on relations with Turkey
  5. Working Group on the Western Balkans.

Each year there are two meetings organised by each of the WGs and JCCs: one meeting in Brussels and another in the partner country.

In total there are ten annual meetings that constitute an important political platform for the exchange of experiences and good practices between the CoR members and the participants from the enlargement countries.

The CoR's official position on enlargement is expressed each year through the regularly issued opinion on the European Commission's enlargement package.
