Commissioner Hahn meets government of Sachsen-Anhalt in Brussels' representation

06/03/2012

To celebrate the opening 20 years ago of the EU representation of the German Region of Sachsen Anhalt, Commissioner Johannes Hahn met with its regional government in its Brussels' office. Regional representatives in the European Parliamen were also present to discuss the future budget for regional policy, on which both government and Commissioner agree it has to be adequate in order to fulfil all the goals of the future policy proposals. Furthermore an increased drive to simplify rules to improve a quick realisation of projects and a better combination of various funds were main points on the agenda. For the latter, the European Commission will propose soon a framework, to ease the planning and combination of investments from various structural funds.
