  • Print page

The Regional Operational Programme of Macedonia-Thrace 2007-2013 is one of the 5 Regional Operational Programmes, which, together with the 8 Sectoral and 12 European territorial Cooperation programmes make up the National Strategic Reference Framework (NSRF) for 2007-2013.

The regional operational programme of Macedonia-Thrace provides development assistance in the geographic unit of 3 administrative regions:

  • Central and Western Macedonia, which are phasing out regions and
  • Eastern Macedonia, which is purely a convergence Region.

This creates a difference in the financial capabilities of the two Regions in accordance with the regulations governing the 4th Programming Period:

  • Central and Western Macedonia finance all their development assistance through this program of Macedonia-Thrace 2007-2013 and may be additionally financed only through the Cohesion Fund, while
  • the Region of Eastern Macedonia is financed through the specific program of Macedonia-Thrace 2007-2013, but also through sectoral programs developed across the country.

The development vision of the geographic unit for this Programming period is condensed in the “creation of a sustainable, competitive regional economy with a strong outward orientation and domestic economic, social, administrative and territorial cohesion.”

The programme’s objectives are to:

  1. Strengthen the competitiveness of the production system,
  2. Promote the position of the geographic unit in southeast Europe
  3. Achieve balanced economic and social development in the context of sustainability.

Funding for the Regional Operational Programme of Macedonia-Thrace for the programming period 2007-2013 is 4.2 billion Euros (the total amount of public expenditure) of which 2.7 billion € represent the Community Assistance.
