This report is a summary of Ex post evaluation and forecast of benefits to EU-15 countries as a result of Cohesion Policy implementation in the V4, a study conducted by Imapp and the Institute for Structural Research between September 2015 and May 2016, as commissioned by the Ministry of Economic Development.
Primarily, the report focuses on benefits to the EU-15 resulting from the general macroeconomic impact of the Cohesion Policy on V4 economies. The interventions co-financed by EU structural funds and the Cohesion Fund stimulate aggregate domestic demand, thus increasing GDP. This, in turn, translates into additional external inflows of consumer products and services (i.e. those sold to final consumers) and investment goods and services (i.e. used as inputs in the production process) mainly from the EU-15.
