Road Map on implementation of European regional funds in Slovakia
The European Commission and Slovak authorities have launched a Joint Road Map (JRM) to facilitate the implementation of the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and Cohesion Fund (CF) in Slovakia. The outline of the Roadmap was agreed by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Transport, Construction and Regional Development of the Slovak Republic, Ján Figeľ and EU Commissioner for Regional Policy, Johannes Hahn, in Bratislava in November 2010. The final framework sets out a joint approach to ensure a timely absorption and effective implementation of the ERDF and CF programmes in Slovakia. The Joint Road Map is an example of good practice in terms of collaboration between the European Commission and the Slovak authorities.
