Detailed description of project Back
Responding to an invitation from the Council, the Commission proposed a comprehensive package of aid and trade measures for the Turkish Cypriot community and, as a consequence, on 27 February 2006 the Council adopted Regulation (EC) 389/2006, the “Aid Regulation” establishing an instrument of financial support for encouraging the economic development of the Turkish Cypriot community. The main objectives of the programme are: to promote social and economic development of the Turkish Cypriot community; to develop and restructure of infrastructure, in particular in the areas of energy, transport, environment, telecommunication and water supply; to foster reconciliation confidence-building measures and support civil society; to bring the Turkish Cypriot community closer to the EU, through information on the EU as well as contacts between Turkish Cypriot and other EU citizens; to help the Turkish Cypriot community to prepare for the implementation of the acquis in case of a comprehensive settlement of the Turkish problem. Following an initial allocation of € 259 million in 2006, an additional €61.5 million have been made available in the period from 2009 to 2012.
