This meeting aimed to favour the exchange of viewpoints and ideas among the focal points of Western European countries about the follow-up of the periodic reporting and the decisions adopted by the 30th World Heritage Committee in Vilnius. Moreover, the meeting allowed to share different experiences in relation to the follow-up of the world Heritage Convention in each country. Italy, Spain, Hungary and Norway have been also invited at the meeting. Indeed, according to our view, the presence of other countries was clearly necessary to improve the reflection.
