En conjunto, la política de cohesión reformada destinará hasta 351 800 millones de euros[1] a inversiones en las regiones y ciudades de Europa, así como en la economía real.Será el instrumento de inversión principal para cumplir los objetivos de «Europa 2020»: generar crecimiento y puestos de trabajo, abordar el cambio climático y la dependencia energética y reducir la pobreza y la marginación social. Contribuirá a esto que el Fondo Europeo de Desarrollo Regional se centre en las prioridades fundamentales, tales como el apoyo a las pequeñas y medianas empresas, con el objetivo de duplicar las ayudas de 70 000 millones de euros a 140 000 millones a lo largo de siete años. Habrá una mayor orientación hacia los resultados y una nueva reserva de eficacia en todos los fondos estructurales y de inversión que incentive los buenos proyectos. Por último, la eficiencia de la política de cohesión, de desarrollo rural y de pesca también se asociará a la gobernanza económica para promover el cumplimiento por los Estados miembros de las recomendaciones de la UE en el marco del Semestre Europeo.
