Coalition agrees on EU funds allocation for 2007-2013

THE GOVERNMENT's coalition partners have agreed on the final version of priorities for Euro-funds' allocation in the 2007-2013 programming period. Seventy-five percent of the €11.2 billion (Sk422 billion) should go into four fundamental strategies - Transport, the Environment, the Regional Operating Programme and a Knowledge-Based Economy.

Overall, the National Strategic Reference Framework features nine operating programmes that include subprograms, such as Health Care, Education, Education Infrastructure, Employment and Social Inclusion and Technical Assistance.

Minister of Construction and Regional Development László Gyurovszky said that national co-financing of at least 15 percent must be added to the total funding.

The cabinet should debate the document on Wednesday, SITA wrote.
