EU cohesion policy program for 2021-2027
The Diario reported this week that in the cohesion policy programs for 2021-2027, European Commissioner Elisa Ferreira guarantees that €1.9 billion will be channelled directly to the Azores and Madeira, which represents an increase of 12% compared to the period in 2014-2020.
The information was advanced by MEP Sara Cerdas, in response to a question submitted to the European Commission last July. The socialist spoke of the “need to reinforce support to respond to the difficulties of the outermost regions (OR) in the face of the impact caused by the Russian aggression against Ukraine and the post-covid economic recovery”.
According to its website, the Cohesion Policy “contributes to strengthening economic, social and territorial cohesion in the European Union. It aims to correct imbalances between countries and regions. It delivers on the Union’s political priorities, especially the green and digital transition”.
