EU Cohesion Policy Funding: a Tool for Economic Recovery

After agriculture, regional policy accounts for the largest portion of the EU budget. Cohesion funding, which supports the EU's regional policy, helps poorer and more vulnerable regions across the EU to develop through targeted investments in infrastructure development, energy networks, transport resources, job creation and economic development. Lambert van Nistelrooij, EPP Group spokesman on cohesion policy, spoke to EPP TV about likely future developments in this field. Available material includes an edited package with soundbites by Commisioner Johannes Hahn in German (voiceover in English).
