EC passes laws to raise Fund profile

The European Commission has approved fresh regulations for its PR work in the poorest states in the European Union.

The EC passed ‘simpler’ rules for what it referred to as ‘information and publicity measures’ because, it said, ‘certain measures have proved too complex to implement’.

It said ‘facilitating the implementation’ of its promotional activity was ‘essential’ to raise awareness of the role the EU played to reduce economic and social disparities.

The reviewed regulations apply to the four states that benefit from the EU’s Cohesion Fund – Spain, Greece, Ireland and Portugal – which itself will be reviewed as a policy in 2006.

The EU will accept ten new members this weekend, including former communist countries, such as Poland.
