European Commissioner for Regional Policy, Johannes Hahn, visited Northern Netherlands on 19 July. The programme comprised meetings with political representatives as well as visits to EU funded projects. Summarizing the impressions of his visit, the Commissioner stated: "The Netherlands have often been displayed as a good example of how relatively small amounts of EU financing could help deliver impressive results, in particular in the field of innovation. In many areas the Netherlands are the innovation driver for Europe".
