  • [01] Satisfaction over funds absorption

    EU Regional Policy Commissioner Danuta Hubner on Monday expressed her satisfaction over absorption rates of a Third Community Support Framework program (2000-2006) by Greece.

    Speaking to Greek reporters in Brussels, ahead of an official three-day visit to Greece, starting on Wednesday, Hubner said the absorption rate reached 93 pct and stressed that ?Greece has won the battle of absorption? while she expressed her confidence that the country would be able to absorb the total of available EU funds by June 30.

    During her stay in Greece, the Commissioner will meet with Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis, Economy Minister Yiannis Papathanasiou, Development Minister Kostis Hatzidakis and Interior Minister Prokopis Pavlopoulos, while she will visit the regions of Epirus and Ionian Islands. Hubner said community support to Epirus in the period 2007-2013 would total 799 million euros, while another 430 million euros were earmarked for the Ionian Islands.

    The Commissioner said she would ask for an acceleration of projects included in the Fourth Community Support Framework program (2007-2013) and noted that advance payments to Greece so far totaled 1.5 billion euros, with the aim of approving another 408 million euros by early May.
