Mr. Jean-Pierre Masseret, President of the French Region of Lorainne, visited Commissioner Hahn on 6 March, to talk about cross border projects in the light of regional policy and urban and city policy, as well with regards to the future funding period.

The European Commission has proposed that the funding for cross border projects should raise by 30% to over 11 billion Euro in the next financial planning period, from 2014 onwards. During the discussions particular attention was paid as well to the possibility of cross border projects to fund start up projects of small companies.
