Fonduri Structurale - valoare adăugată şi costuri
[Structural Funds - value added and costs]


  • Berica, Corina


This present article proposes to advance the general framework of the Economical and Social Cohesion Policy promoted by the EU. It presents the main instruments and outlines used to promote this policy. Analyzing the effects produced by Structural Funds, both positive and negative, on other countries, it helps us to form a clear image on the impact of the Cohesion Policy. Both added value and costs are illustrated on countries with advanced experience in structural assistance. These are being sustained by case studies, reports and analyses. Even though the assessements made in Romania’s case as concerns the Structural Funds, for both present and future, are encouraging, these have to be approached with an ample attention because Romania has many steps to follow in order to improve the implementation process.
