Question for written answer E-002073-19
to the Commission
Rule 130
Adam Szejnfeld (PPE)

 Subject:  Amount of EU financial support to Poland, including pre-accession funds
 Answer in writing 

Poland has undergone a profound change over the last quarter of a century and is today a modern state and the fastest-growing country in the EU. There is no doubt that EU funds have made a substantial contribution to this success. Without Community financial support, both from pre-accession programmes and the funds which Poland received subsequently, it would have been difficult for it to have achieved such excellent results on its own.

A substantive and fair public debate — especially at present, when populist, Eurosceptic or even anti-EU movements are gaining increasing popularity — needs to be based on verified and unequivocal data, including data on the financial support which Poland has received from the EU.

Could the Commission therefore please answer the following questions:

What is the total amount of financial support which Poland has received and is expected to receive from the EU from 1 May 2004 until the end of the current financial perspective (including funds which have not yet been used under the current MFF)?

What is the total amount of pre-accession aid that Poland received from when it applied for EU membership until 1 May 2004?

What is the total amount of support that Poland has received from Switzerland, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein through the so-called Swiss Funds, Norwegian Funds and EEA Funds over the whole period referred to above?
