With the aim to promote experience and best practice sharing in the region 5 networking thematic groups were established for the M4EG Acting members.

Each group is comprised of representatives of local authorities from each Eastern Partnership country, according to their strategic priorities as set out in their Local Economic Development Plans. The topics for the groups include:

a. Business Support Services
b. Agriculture
c. Tourism
d. IT-services
e. Wine making

The working groups are created as support and experience exchange platforms for professional networking on the above topics. The groups are planned to be self-governed under the overall coordination of the M4EG Country coordinators, and bottom-up driven. While the M4EG initiative can contribute some money towards the implementation of selected activities within these groups, it is expected that the funding might also be contributed by motivated and interested participants.
