Launch event Investment Guidance on Cohesion Policy Funding 2021-2027 for Sweden



This year's European Commission Country Reports are more focussed on improving investments in EU and include an annex (D) which outlines the Commission services' investment guidance on Cohesion policy funding 2021-2027 for each Member State. These annexes will serve as the basis for the informal dialogue on Cohesion policy programming.

06/03/2019 - 15:00 - 17:00

Building on the European Commission’s proposal for the next Multi-Annual Financial Framework for the period 2021-2027, the Annex D of the Country Report presents the preliminary Commission services' views on priority investment areas and framework conditions for effective delivery for the 2021- 2027 Cohesion Policy. These priority investment areas are derived from the broader context of investment bottlenecks, investment needs and regional disparities assessed in the Country Report. It provides the basis for a dialogue between Sweden and the Commission services in view of the programming of the cohesion policy funds (European Regional Development Fund and European Social Fund Plus), which starts with this launch event.
