Markku MarkkulaThe President of the European Committee of the Regions (CoR), Markku Markkula (pictured right), and the EU Commissioner for Regional Policy, Corina Creţu, discussed today joint measures to speed up the delivery of the EU’s cohesion policy for 2014-2020. They agreed that the two EU institutions would enhance their joint work to ensure that regions and cities benefit from the effective integration of EU regional policy programmes and the recently established European Fund for Strategic Investment (EFSI).

U prvom sastanku od CoRs’ presidential elections, Predsjednik Markkula i povjerenik Creţu identificirali su zajedničke prioritete kojima će se pozabaviti intenziviranjem suradnje u sljedećim mjesecima. Dvije institucije složile su se udružiti snage u razvijanju novih inicijativa poput inicijativa za MSP, Digitalnog tržišta i Energetske unije koje bi pomogle ekonomskom oporavku manje razvijenih regija EU korištenjem sredstava kohezijske politike i nedavno pokrenutog Junckerovog plana u iznosu od 315 milijardi eura.

In this context, it was agreed to focus on improving the delivery and effectiveness of EU structural and investment funds (ESIF). The CoR will cooperate with the Commission’s Working Group on Administrative Capacity to identify opportunities to simplify and streamline current procedures and encourage regions to innovate their investment strategies through, for example, smart specialization.

President Markkula stressed that: “We fully share the EU’s main priority of boosting the investment capacity of regions and cities. Achieving this goal is not possible without a sound delivery of EU cohesion policy effectively complemented by Juncker’s EU Investment Plan.”

According to Commissioner Creţu: “The key to Europe achieving its agreed, long term growth goals is in the hands of our regions and cities – social and economic success depends on decisions taken at their level. This is why our long standing and fruitful partnership with the Committee of the Regions is so vital as it serves to strengthen our link to the grassroots level in Europe. We look forward to continuing this cooperation to get Europe’s regions and cities on the path to sustainable growth and economic self-reliance,” she concluded.

One shared concern, recently highlighted by the European Commission’s Sixth Cohesion Report, was that after a decade of convergence, disparity between EU member states and regions are on the rise again. This issue will be directly addressed by CoR members from several member states who are in the process of launching an Interregional Group on less developed regions.

Odbor će također surađivati ​​s Komisijom kako bi pojasnio kako korisnici EU-a koje podržavaju više izvora financiranja mogu bolje koristiti. Komisija također potiče uporabu financijskih instrumenata u okviru kohezijske politike u kojima oni mogu učinkovito zamijeniti ili nadopuniti tradicionalne potpore. Vijeće je nedavno nedavno podijelilo ovo pitanje s Europskom investicijskom bankom, ključnim partnerom na ovom polju.

Renewing the EU’s commitment to support an integrated urban agenda and enhancing EU decentralized communication, focusing on the impact of cohesion on growth and jobs, were also among the cooperation areas discussed at the meeting.
