Czech Republic – A partner country for Switzerland’s contribution to EU enlargement

The Swiss contribution to the Czech Republic amounts to CHF 110 million. Between now and 2017, 38 projects designed to reduce economic and social disparities in the Czech Republic will be implemented. Roughly 40% of the funding will be allocated to structurally weak regions in eastern Czech. A Swiss contribution office has been established in Prague for the purpose of working closely on project implementation with the national coordination unit within the Czech Ministry of Finance.

The regions of «Moravian-Silesian», «Olomouc» and later also «Zlín» are vested with priority. At least 40% of the enlargement contribution to the Czech Republic is to go to the benefit of these regions either directly or indirectly.
