The European Commission adopted a report on progress made under the 2017 Strategic Partnership with the EU’s outermost regions wich shows that this strengthened partnership is bearing fruit.
The Commission has created a number of opportunities in the context of EU policies and funding instruments. These measures include:
- Taking into account regions’ specificities in policy-making, from state aid to taxation, from the European Semester to the Green Deal or the circular economy action plan;
- Reflecting their specificities in twenty-one proposals for 2021-2027 EU programmes and funds, in a wide range of sectors including cohesion, agriculture, fisheries, research, environment, transport and digital connectivity;
- Creating tailored opportunities under existing initiatives such as Horizon 2020 and LIFE;
- Setting up dedicated taskforces and reaching out to the citizens of these regions through citizens’ dialogues.
