Reducing Economic Differences: Cohesion Fund

Introduction to Cohesion Fund

Another instrument for reducing economic differences between EU member states is the Cohesion Fund. The fund was established to transfer money to the poorer EU states to assist them in meeting the criteria for Economic and Monetary Union. As with the Regional Development Fund and the Social Fund, the majority of grants from the Cohesion Fund have gone to the poorer member states.” (1)
