The People behind the Projects - Interview with Bodil Persson - Cross-Border Cooperation

Working across borders to bring people together

 
Cross-Border Cooperation under the ENP (called ENPI CBC) is a whole family of programmes, whose main objective should be seen in the context of the EU’s big enlargement in 2004 and 2007, explains Head of CBC Sector at the European Commission Bodil Persson in an interview with the ENPI Info Centre: “We work with 13 main programmes along the EU’s external border; each programme will manage hundred of projects. The idea is to fund and help to develop border regions”,
 
While the European Neighbourhood Policy targets external relations with the neighbouring countries as a whole, the Cross Border Cooperation (CBC) programmes put the focus on equal cooperation across borders at local and regional levelIt is a true partnership programme. Partners take joint decisions on how to spend the money within the identified priorities, and jointly select the projects themselves.” she adds.
 
This is part of “The People behind the Projects”, a series of interviews with leaders of EU projects, funded by the ENPI Regional Programme. (ENPI Info Centre)
