Johannes Hahn, Member of the EC in charge of Regional Policy, gave a press conference on Regional Policy contributing to smart growth in Europe 2020. The Commission launched a call to action to those in Member States managing Cohesion funds, urging wider use of the money to finance sustainable growth projects, and offering advice on how to improve the quality of investments. These messages, designed to promote implementation of the Resource Efficiency flagship initiative of the Europe 2020 strategy, adopted the day before, underline the key role that regional policy can have in ensuring EU targets in this area are met.
