Cohesion Policy (A7-0081/2014 - Vilja Savisaar-Toomast)

  Lívia Járóka (PPE), in writing. - Disparities in development between European regions have increased as a result of the economic and financial crisis, and convergence regions are not able to overcome their difficulties alone. It is necessary to boost infrastructure investments, in particular through cohesion policy support, in order to tackle regional disparities and the effects of the crisis on groups at risk of poverty and exclusion. Different approaches are used by the Member States in preparing for the implementation of the future Cohesion Policy. It is equally vital, however, that Member States and regions take the necessary steps to prepare the partnership agreements and operational programmes in a timely and efficient way so as to be ready to implement the funding as soon as possible, once the agreement on the Common Provisions Regulation is reached. It is vitally important that projects can begin as soon as possible at the start of 2014 so that the use of European funding can be maximised in order to stimulate growth, and consequently social cohesion and inclusion, in the regions that are most in need, as well as to support transition and RCE regions in their efforts to meet the objectives of the Europe 2020 strategy.
