25/09/2012

In the framework of the celebrations round the European Cooperation Day in Austria, EU Commissioner Johannes Hahn visited on 22 September a cross border project, a bridge in Schlosshof at the Austrian/Slovak border. This is a flagship project within the Danube Strategy.

Participating in the opening ceremony of the bridge, Commissioner Hahn said, "I am delighted to be here today to see another example of the EU in action. This bridge, linking Austria and Slovakia, is one of 30,000 cross border projects that have received funding from the EU . It's what the EU is all about : bringing once divided communities together as part of a broader strategy to promote sustainable tourism and recreation and ultimately jobs and growth to all of Europe's regions.
