Based on the New Growth Plan for the region, a facility complementary to the Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance is established which also places emphasis on multipliers for social and economic development: connectivity, transport, energy, digital transitions, innovation, education and skills development. Addressing the green and digital transition and support to SMEs are highlighted.
