Wales and the EU: Partnership for Jobs and Growth - European Structural Funds 2014-2020
The consultation, Wales and the EU:Partnership for Jobs and Growth held earlier this year, outlined the Welsh Government's EU investment priorities for 2014-20. It generated more than 200 written responses with over 300 people attending four regional events held across Wales to discuss the Structural Funds and Rural Development Plan. The report includes responses to the Equality Impact Assessments (EIAs) and the Environmental Impact Assessments (SEAs) for both Structural Funds and Rural Development Plan programmes.
The Consultation Analysis is available below.
In line with Europe 2020 and Welsh Government policies and strategies, the future programmes will be aimed at shaping the conditions for smart, sustainable and inclusive economic growth, with an agricultural industry that is strong and capable of supporting vibrant rural communities. To help achieve this, amongst the priorities for the future Structural Funds are skills, helping people into work, enterprise and SME competitiveness, energy efficiency and the digital economy. For the Rural Development Funds, the priorities are protecting the environment and resource efficiency, climate change adaption, community-led local development and renewal of rural communities.
The consultation closed for both programmes on April 23, and we aim to submit the Operational Programmes to the European Commission for negotiation and agreement this Autumn.
