On the meeting of june 1st in Bucharest, the group "Friends of Cohesion" involving the European Commission and fifteen other countries (Bulgaria, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Lithuania, Latvia, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Czech Republic, Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia and Croatia), has defended the benefits and the future budget of the Cohesion Policy. 



Motor of european growth, and shield against the economic crisis, the Cohesion Policy would probably be reduced of a part of its budget if the initiative of net contributors states is accepted. The reason given by them is that the policy of austerity needed to restore public deficits implies to cut all budgets.
This group which includes the President of the Commission has defended its positions last friday:  a budget up to 1,000 billion euros for the next financial framework 2014-2020, which means a budget substantially equivalent to the previous program, which is considered as an "absolute minimum" by the collective.

The Cohesion policy to boost growth

While some states, such as net contributors to the EU budget see the Cohesion policy as a source of savings, fifteen states and the Commission emphasize the overall impact of the Cohesion Policy on the territories of 27, on the dynamism of growth, investment and jobs that it generates: 1.4 million jobs supported, 800,000 SMEs created... Finally, States and the European Commission which took part to the meeting in Bucharest has supported a valorisation of Cohesion policy by a budget at least equivalent and affected in a better and more efficient way. At the same time the president Barroso has suggested to settle a deeper european integration and a stronger economic union more harmonized of which the schedule will be presented on 28-29 June.
