The current unprecedented crisis has put to the test all aspects of our life, including cross-border cooperation, which is facing its most significant setback in decades. Overnight, Member States closed their borders across the European Union without consulting their neighbours. This instantly put different sectors of our economy into a very difficult position, with some sectors, in certain regions, facing potential collapse. After decades of prosperity and open borders, we once again saw split families, workers not being able to reach their workplaces, with travelling and trading slowed to almost a standstill at the beginning of the crisis.
