"Portugal, on the Path to Growth and Jobs" conference in Lisbon: speech by Johannes Hahn


Johannes Hahn, Member of the EC in charge of Regional Policy, addressed the conference "Portugal, on the path to growth and jobs" organised by the European Commission in Lisbon, Portugal, on 11 April 2014. The conference aimed to look into the future prospects for growth and jobs in the country and the importance of European funds and programmes to boost the Portuguese economy. Portugal has received over 70 billion euro in Cohesion Policy funding since the country joined the EU in 1986. This funding enabled the country to invest in sectors which have been key to Portugal's economic growth. For 2014-2020, Portugal has been allocated around 21.46 billion euro for Cohesion Policy, which will be used to further increase economic competitiveness, improve entrepreneurship, boost innovation and tackle unemployment.
