Structural Reform Support Programme: financial envelope and general objective

V stručnosti 05-09-2018

The Structural Reform Support Programme for the period 2017 to 2020 has been running since May 2017. It provides voluntary assistance to Member States for preparation and implementation of growth-sustaining administrative and structural reforms. In light of the high take-up of the programme, the changes proposed by the Commission expand its scope to cover support for euro membership preparations and increase its financial envelope from €142.8 million to €222.8 million. The European Parliament is due to vote on the text agreed with Council during its September plenary session.
