Vasco Alves Cordeiro 

Voorzitter van het Europees Comité van de Regio’s 

Vasco Alves Cordeiro werd in juni 2022 verkozen tot voorzitter van het Europees Comité van de Regio’s.

Op 28 maart 1973 werd hij geboren op de Azoren, een autonome regio van Portugal en een ultraperifeer gebied van de EU. Hij is advocaat, getrouwd, vader van twee kinderen en lid van het parlement van de autonome regio Azoren.

Vasco Alves Cordeiro studeerde af in de rechten aan de Universiteit van Coimbra en behaalde een postdoctoraal diploma in regionaal recht aan de Universiteit van Lissabon en de Universiteit van de Azoren. In 1995 begon hij zijn professionele loopbaan als advocaat op de Azoren, een beroep dat hij tot 2003 bleef uitoefenen.

In 1996 werd hij voor het eerst verkozen tot lid van het parlement van de autonome regio Azoren voor de Socialistische Partij, en tussen 2000 en 2003 leidde hij er de socialistische fractie.

Sindsdien bekleedde hij verschillende functies in de regionale regering, waaronder minister van Economische Zaken (2008-2012), minister van Algemene Zaken, verantwoordelijk voor Europese en Externe Zaken (2004-2008), en minister van Landbouw en Visserij (2003-2004).

In 2012 werd hij voor het eerst verkozen tot minister-president van de Azoren, waarna in 2016 een tweede ambtstermijn volgde. In die hoedanigheid vertegenwoordigde hij de regio op Europees en internationaal niveau als lid van het Europees Comité van de Regio’s en van organisaties zoals de Conferentie van de perifere maritieme regio’s van Europa, de Conferentie van ministers-presidenten van ultraperifere regio’s van de EU, de Vergadering van de Regio’s van Europa en R20 (Regions of Climate Action), en onderhield hij betrekkingen met landen waar veel Azorianen wonen, waaronder de VS, Canada en Brazilië. Van 2014 tot 2020 was hij voorzitter van de Conferentie van de perifere maritieme regio’s van Europa.

Sinds januari 2013 is Cordeiro voorzitter van de Socialistische Partij van de Azoren. Vasco Alves Cordeiro is er steeds een groot voorstander van geweest om burgers meer bij het Europees project te betrekken. Hij zet zich er ook voor in om de sociale, economische en territoriale samenhang van de Europese Unie te versterken en pleit voor Europees beleid dat de belangen en ambities van burgers daadwerkelijk weerspiegelt en de rol van regio’s als bastions van de democratie binnen de EU en haar economische en sociale vooruitgang versterkt.

Sinds 2013 is Cordeiro lid van het Europees Comité van de Regio’s en daarvoor, van 2004 tot 2008, was hij plaatsvervanger. Van februari 2020 tot juni 2022 was hij de eerste vicevoorzitter van de instelling.
