The Joint Commission of Territorial and Economic Self-Governments of Małopolska Region (JCTESG) [Komisja Wspólna Samorządów Terytorialnych i Gospodarczych Małopolski, KWSTiGM], established in 2003 as a consultative and advisory team, addresses the need to empower local communities to participate in policy-making, pursuant to the request for economic self-government representing a wide spectrum of entrepreneurs. The major objective of the Commission is to exchange information between local communities, territorial and business selfgovernments as well as to accommodate shared views to be followed up in the decision-making processes, which are critical for the Voivodship’s economic policy. The main fields of the Commission’s activity comprise:

  • Cooperation in the process of shaping the Voivodship’s development strategy and pursuing its development policy;
  • Contribution and engagement in decision-making processes related to strategic investments in Małopolskie Voivodship (e.g. with regard to planning and spending of funds);
  • Exchange of opinions on legislative solutions pertaining to the economy (e.g. draft acts, recommendations of new solutions such as operating programmes);
  • Cooperation in identifying problems faced by Polish entrepreneurs in connection with the integration into the EU. Recognition of assistance opportunities and a common search for solutions (EU funds, HACCP requirements, regional products);
  • Participation of self-governments in the implementation process of activities relating to external funds managed by the Voivodship;
  • Facilitating development of entrepreneurship by development of a favourable climate for entrepreneurship.

The functioning of the Commission targets effective cooperation between the two self-governments and reinforces the significance of partnership between self-governments and entrepreneurs in order to create a new quality of ‘governance’. The project significantly facilitates mutual communication and exchange of opinions between self-governments as well as the identification and solution of ongoing problems related to economic growth. The self-government of Małopolskie Voivodship fully endorses the initiative, bearing in mind that the effectiveness of partnership between economic and territorial self-governments is critical for the pace of economic development of local communities on the EU single market.
