Visit of Ian Borg, Maltese Parliamentary Secretary for the EU Presidency 2017 and EU Funds, to Johannes Hahn
On 29 October 2014, Johannes Hahn, Member of the EC in charge of Regional Policy, concluded a Partnership Agreement with Malta setting down the strategy for the optimal use of European Structural and Investment Funds throughout the country. This agreement paves the way for investing € 729 million in total Cohesion Policy funding over 2014-2020 (current prices, including € 17 million for European Territorial Cooperation funding and € 3.9 million for the FEAD allocation). Malta also receives € 97.3 million for rural development and € 22.6 million for fisheries and the maritime sector.
The EU investments will help tackle unemployment and boost competitiveness and economic growth through support to innovation, training and education in cities, towns and rural areas. They will also promote entrepreneurship, fight social exclusion and help to develop an environmentally friendly and a resource-efficient economy. SHOTLIST
