Cohesion policy plays a key role in Europe’s future. It is a first responder in the COVID crisis and a linchpin of the recovery package. In the longer term, it will be a cornerstone of the Green Deal for all regions, with no one left behind. Over the years, regional policy has constantly offered expertise in transition, structural transformation and policy implementation. In this respect, our budget helps to turn the Union’s priorities into results that make a difference to people’s lives.

The Annual Activity Report (AAR) provides an overview of the performance, management and protection of our 2019 budget. In the context of our responsibilities both present and future, the report underlines how cohesion policy supports Europe’s regions and people rise to the challenges of the digital revolution and the green, climate-neutral economy. The AAR also helps to highlight REGIO’s role as a source of expertise and capacity in transitions and structural transformations. In that regard, the report shows why cohesion policy is a key tool to address current challenges in Europe.

This summary brochure gives a brief overview of our achievements in 2019.
