Almost 40 Percent of EU Financing for Bulgaria until 2022 Negotiated

Bulgaria has negotiated 38.44 percent of the European financing until the year 2022, according to information regarding the implementation of the EU funded operational programmes, quoted by BGNES. 
Top of the list is the OP Regions in Growth, more than half of the funding for which has already been negotiated, as has around 45 percent of the financing for OP Transport and OP Human Resources Development. However there is a considerable delay in the operational programmes Environment, Science and Education for Intelligent Growth, as well as Good Governance where no more than 20 percent of the European financing has been negotiated. 
Compared to the other European countries, Bulgaria is positioned somewhere  around “golden mean”. Belgium and Hungary, for example have negotiated over 50 percent of the European funding for the programming period, which ends definitively in 2022. Portugal, Sweden, Estonia, Finland and Ireland are all ahead of Bulgaria. The country is on a par with Germany and Denmark and way ahead of Romania, the Czech Republic, Croatia and Poland which have negotiated a little over 10 percent of their European financing. 
By the beginning of March 2017 Brussels had transferred 1.4 billion Leva to Bulgaria or around 9.3 percent of the European financing for the programming period. Beneficiaries have been paid a little over 8 percent of 1.424 billion Leva, including national co-financing.
