A8-0202/2016 - Iskra Mihaylova

in writing. - The rapporteur stresses the need for the management and implementation of European territorial cooperation (ETC) programmes and projects to become less bureaucratic. Irrespective of the separate regulation, the implementation of ETC programmes remains too complicated, and the report therefore urges the High Level Group of Independent Experts on Monitoring Simplification for Beneficiaries of ESI Funds to consider measures for significantly simplifying and reducing the administrative burden on beneficiaries.

As I am of this opinion I supported the report.
