The Basque Government commemorates Europe Day by championing the leading role of the regions

2024 May 9

On the occasion of today's celebration of Europe Day, the Department of Economy and Finance, through the Directorate of Cohesion Policy and European Funds, joins in this commemoration by contributing, from Basque Country, the leading role that the regions must play in the new Europe.

To this end, a video has been produced highlighting how Europe is facing major challenges today, including the energy, digital and social transition, highlighting the need for a forward-looking and courageous approach in order for the old continent to take its place in the new world that is emerging. A view based on values, competitiveness and social cohesion. Challenges to which the Basque Country contributes elements of enormous value, such as a language and culture that are unique in the world, an advanced position in innovation, economic growth and the fight against inequality.

Socio-economic indicators position the Basque Country in the international context as a rigorous, respected and humanist country. On this anniversary, Euskadi dedicates to Europe its energy, its strength and its conviction that it is possible to compete in a global world from the local level.

In this shared task, the Basque Country can count on the collaboration of the co-financing instruments of the European Union's cohesion policy.

The Department of Economy and Finance, through the Directorate of Cohesion Policy and European Funds, plans, manages and coordinates the ERDF and European Social Fund programmes, which have been fully implemented and certified for the period 14-20, and whose new 21-27 period is already underway with the aim of meeting the aforementioned challenges in line with the Basque Strategic Framework for the Management of European Cohesion Funds 2021-2027, the Smart Specialisation Strategy-RIS 3 Euskadi 2030 (Euskadi 2030 Science, Technology and Innovation Plan) and the Basque Green Deal initiative.
