This report synthesises the main points to come out of the 27 country reports for 2011 produced by the network of national experts set up to monitor the performance of programmes co-financed by the ERDF and Cohesion Fund over the 2007-2013 period. It is a follow-up to the report produced at
the end of 2010 and considers in turn:

  • the economic context in which the programmes are being implemented, the prospects for the rest of the programming period and how both have changed over the past year;
  • how regional disparities and the development policy pursued in different parts of the EU have been affected by the crisis and the measures taken to tackle it;
  • the scale of support from the ERDF and Cohesion Fund to Member States in relation to development expenditure;
  • the progress in implementing programmes across the EU and the extent to which the delays evident at the end of 2010 have been shortened and absorption problems overcome;
  • the outcome of expenditure so far carried out in the different policy areas;
  • the evaluations undertaken in Member States of EU co-financed programmes.
