EU Structural and Cohesion funds contribute 11-24% of the GDP of EU member states in Central & Eastern Europe (CEE), making outstanding contributions to these countries' infrastructure, transportation systems and urban modernization, among others. Following the completion of the 2007-2013 programming period, CEE countries now find themselves in the 2014-2020 EU funding interval, having finalized the negotiations stage with the European Commission, while some are even at the implementation stage.
The latest survey from KPMG's Government & Infrastructure Sectors practice in CEE, entitled EU Funds in Central and Eastern Europe – Progress Report 2007-2015, shows the progress of the CEE member states in the present funding period, and reveals that some of these countries could be doing a better job of contracting EU funds.
