General atmosphere votes at EP Regional Development Committee: 10/07/2013
On 10 July 2013, the Members of the European Parliament's Committee on Regional Development adopted a series of reports that in principle agree a radical reform of the Regional Policy.
The reports reflect the outcome of negotiations between the European Commission, the European Parliament and the Member States on wide-ranging changes in the way regional policy programmes are managed for maximum impact. The new approach focuses the largest part of the EU investments on key areas for growth and jobs. It demands targets to measure results and sets new conditions for funding. SHOTLISTLINKLINK
