Economic Disparities Between Eu States And Regions
EU has 27 Member States representing a community and a market of 493 million citizens, which creates further economic and social disparities between the states and their 271 regions. In a region in four, the GDP (gross domestic product) per capita is 75% below the average for the EU-27. Based on the concepts of solidarity and cohesion, regional policy of the European Union favors reducing structural disparities between EU regions, the balanced development of the community and promoting an effective equality of opportunity between people. Over the past 50 years, European cooperation has helped build highways, sewage plants, bridges, laboratories for biotechnology. She helped to revive urban areas and neglected activities, through countless projects in the poorest regions of the Union.. Two key values: solidarity and cohesion, underlying these projects and the regional policy of the European Union. The economic, social and territorial cohesion will always be at the heart of Europe Strategy 2020, a key mechanism for achieving the priorities for a smart growth, sustainable and inclusive in the Member States and regions.
