  • Antonescu, Daniela

    () (Institute for Economic Forecasting)


Regional policy puts into practice the solidarity between the people and the countries of Europe and sustains the achievement of one of the fundamental objectives: the strengthening of the EU’s economic and social cohesion by reducing developmental; disparities between its regions. For the period 2007-2013, the Commission proposes to concentrate its priorities in three areas, with a global budget of approx. 336 billion euros: Convergence will stimulate growth and employment in the less developed regions; Competitiveness will anticipate changes in the rest of the EU and will include a regional component; for which a member state will select beneficiary zones and a national component based on the European Employment Strategy; Cooperation will draw on the experiences acquired by INTERREG to encourage harmonious development through the EU territory.
