Cohesion Policy at work: key outcomes of EU investments in 2007-2013
One million jobs created, corresponding to one-third of overall net job creation across the EU during this period, and €2.74 of additional GDP for every euro of Cohesion Policy money invested, meaning an estimated return of €1 trillion of additional GDP by 2023 – these are the key results of the 2007-2013 Cohesion Policy, on the basis of an evaluation conducted by external experts. The policy has benefitted the economies of all EU Member States and supported them during difficult economic times. It has invested in nearly 400,000 SMEs and start-ups and has been a pillar of the EU’s growth and jobs agenda. More information can be found in this press release.
