The Bilateral Commission for Cooperation between the State Administration and the Autonomous Community of Murcia was set up on 15 July 1988.

It is made up of five members from the State Administration and five from the Autonomous Community, without prejudice to the fact that the Commission may summon other authorities to its meetings depending on the issues to be dealt with.

In the constitutive act of the Commission, it is conceived as a forum or meeting point for both Administrations, and therefore, as an instrument of collaboration between them, in order to promote programmes and possible joint actions for the development of common policies in the different sectoral areas, and to serve as a channel for preventive actions in the attempt to avoid conflicts arising between both Administrations, and to arbitrate proposals for solutions to issues of interest to the aforementioned Administrations in matters within their competence.

To this end, the Commission may examine any matters that affect both parties, and in particular, those whose purpose is to avoid or attempt to resolve conflicts of competence by out-of-court means, as well as to design mechanisms for mutual collaboration in the different areas in which the activity of both Administrations may converge.
