155 views

Invited to the European Summit of Regions and Cities in Prague, José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, welcomed this opportunity to celebrate the essential role of regions for Europe's people, particularly in this unprecedented situation. "The Commission", he said," has proposed to support the Member States and the regions in their recovery efforts by accelerating investments in cohesion policy programmes. In our recovery plan, cohesion policy is providing considerable support for public investment by Member States and their regions, with more than 347 billion euros for 2007-2013. In this perspective, he urged the representatives of regional and local authorities committed here in Prague, to focus on "high-return" measures, such as investing in energy efficiency and investing in industries for the future."
