European cohesion policy
One of the main objectives of the EU is cohesion, namely a decrease in the disparity of wealth between its constituent parts. A considerable part of the EU budget is earmarked for this policy. The policy should also support the EU 2020 strategy, which focuses on smart, inclusive and sustainable growth. Over the past decades the EU has been able to realize to some extent its ambitions. Effectiveness can be further stepped up by making improvements in the delivery system.
