As it is increasingly likely that the United Kingdom will leave the European Union without a deal on 12 April, the European Commission has today completed its “no-deal” preparations.
At the same time, it continues supporting administrations in their own preparations and urges all EU citizens and businesses to continue informing themselves about the consequences of a possible “no-deal” scenario and to complete their no-deal preparedness. This follows the European Council (Article 50) conclusions last week calling for work to be continued on preparedness and contingency. While a “no-deal” scenario is not desirable, the EU is prepared for it.
Attendees at a Dublin seminar were told today that the European Commission is proposing to invest €1.2 billion in Cohesion Funding in Ireland over the period 2021 to 2027. €640 million is being proposed under the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) while €579 million is being proposed under the European Social Fund (ESF).
Today's event marked the start of the dialogue between Ireland and the Commission services concerning the programming of the future Cohesion Policy funds (ERDF and ESF).
This exhibition illustrates just some of the ways in which Ireland has benefitted from EU membership over the past four and a half decades. It includes stories from every county and across many sectors, including agriculture, culture, education, business, environment, health and consumer protection.
The exhibition is on a nationwide tour until July 2019, following its successful launch in Leinster House in 2018.
