What are the Investments Opportunities in the European Capital Regions?

Claudia Ionescu, Wiolleta Wereda


There might be some specific problems for Central East European Countries (CEE/ CEEC) to comply with the additionality principle and to avoid excessive deficits at the same time. The main reason is that the budgets of the CEECs still face some risks for revenues and expenditures. Therefore, maintaining structural expenditure at a stable level without allowing for temporary public deficits will be difficult for CEECs. In this paper we will provide several arguments that suggest not targeting the EU structural assistance exclusively at the reduction of regional disparities within CEECs. Doing so would not only face problems due to missing administrations and statistics at the regional level, but might also be at the expense of national economic growth and extend the process of catching-up. Each CEEC has it own specificity that is reflected more or less on capital region. According our analysis we will find what are the opportunities for investments in this Capital regions.
