EU Commissioner Cretu to visit Cyprus

European Commissioner for Regional Policy Corina Cretu will be paying an official visit to Cyprus on Thursday to discuss structural funds programmes.

The main purpose of the visit is to talk about the full utilisation of the funding for the period 2007-2013, as well as the timely planning of the programmes for the period 2014-2020.

The Directorate General for Regional and Urban Policy is the European Commission service for European, Structural and Investment Funds. For the period 2014-2020, Cyprus has secured financing worth €960 million.

During her visit, Crețu will meet with the ministers of finance and agriculture, and the Directorate General for European Programmes, Coordination and Development.

She will also visit the old town of Nicosia in the Tahtakalas area, which was restructured with EU funds during the period 2007-2013, as well as the intensive care unit of the Nicosia General Hospital, where telemedicine and tele-education methods are being used, financed by EU funds.
