In the current ESPA we have managed to increase our absorption to such an extent that we are now second in the European Union without calculating the resources of REACT E.U.
Greece to be the first country to receive approval from the European Commission for the new programming period 2021-2027, which will allow it to be the first country to absorb resources from the new ESPA within the current year.
The approval of the new Corporate Regional Development Pact 2021-2027 marks the beginning of the implementation of an ambitious plan for the regional development of the country based on the co-financed Cohesion Policy programs.
