Statement from EU Regional Policy Commissioner Johannes Hahn on today's EU budget (MFF) deal
"We welcome today's agreement because it means that much needed investments for jobs and growth through the structural funds should now be delivered in time for the new programming period. Investors and regions need clarity and today's decision helps to provide that.
Now with a deal on the EU Budget in place I urge the European Parliament and the Council to find an agreement on the new regulations to reform cohesion policy. These will equip it to deliver investments for our citizens and stimulate EU economies with more impact and focus than ever before."
