In CEE 11 countries were able to access nearly EUR 176bn within the last EU funding period.
The contribution that EU Funding brings to the economies in Central & Eastern Europe (CEE) countries cannot be overstated, but how can the process be made more efficient? Some of the answers may be found in KPMG's recently issued survey, EU Funds in Central & Eastern Europe, Progress Report 2007-2014, which shows the history of how these funds have been utilized over the last programming period – 2007-2013 – analysing the results and surmising how that information can be used to formulate the best possible policy measures for making the 2014-2020 period run as smoothly as possible.
Within that last funding period, 11 countries within the region were able to access nearly EUR 176 billion, which translates to as much as 15.5% of average regional GDP for CEE.
