The European Commission has recently presented Croatian authorities with a Position Paper on the development of the Partnership Agreement and programmes for the period 2014-2020. The document will serve as framework for dialogue and negotiation between Brussels and Zagreb. The Position Paper outlines Croatia’s most pressing challenges and proposes four complementary and mutually reinforcing funding priorities.

Press release

I know these have been difficult talks, so I am relieved that we have an agreement from the European Council on the EU budget for 2014-2020. Subject to the European Parliament's consent, we can continue our preparations for the next programming period for Cohesion Policy without any more delay. This is about getting EU investments to where they can do most good- creating jobs and helping Europe's recovery. It is about giving investors certainty about where private funds can also bolster our efforts. 

The role of Polish regions will increase in the future programming period
