EUROPEAN COURT OF AUDITORS

ECA/13/24

Luxembourg, 10 September 2013

INVITATION - PRESS BRIEFING
Have the Member States and the Commission achieved value for money with the measures for diversifying the rural economy?

EU rural development spending for diversifying the rural economy is intended to address identified problems in rural areas such as depopulation, scarcity of economic opportunities and unemployment. It provides funding to people and rural businesses for projects to help support growth, employment and sustainable development.

The European Court of Auditors assessed whether the measures were designed and implemented in such a way as to make an effective contribution to growth and jobs and whether the most effective and efficient projects were chosen for financing. Furthermore, the Court assessed whether the available monitoring and evaluation information provided reliable, complete and timely information on the outcomes of the measures.

The main conclusions and recommendations of the report will be presented to the press by Mr Jan Kinšt (CZ), Member of the Court.
