“Deputies voted in favour of extending Cyprus’ eligibility period in which the 85% co-financing ratio remains in place until the completion of the 2014 to 2020 programme period,” the parliament said in an emailed statement recently.
As a “developed region” Cyprus would be eligible to a 50% financing contribution with European Union funds, the parliament said. “Given though that Cyprus is facing for some time now financial hardship and a drop in investment level, it was granted a higher co-financing ratio effective on January 1, 2014”.
The new regulation which requires the Council’s approval, will enter into force a day after it is published in the EU’s gazette, the statement said.
