EU payments made by the Commission to Member States under the ESI Funds are now transparent
The Commission is now publishing on a daily basis details of the payments made to the Member States under all the European Structural and Investments Funds. By the end of August 2017 a total of EUR 58 Billion had been paid to the programmes co-financed by the ESI funds. These payments take the form of pre-financing (initial and annual) and interim payments reimbursing expenditure declared. The EU payment information is presented on the ESIF Open Data Platform in graphs showing the complete picture by year on a cumulative basis and overviews by Fund and by Member States.
