Regional Competitiveness Operational Programme 2007-2009 - Croatia

Within the overall aim of ensuring that the relevant institutions of the Republic of Croatia achieve readiness for
eventual EU membership and develop institutional capacity and practical experience with the management of
investments similar to those co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), the Regional
Competitiveness Operational Programme (RCOP) shall serve as a basis for using the EU pre-accession
assistance for the purpose of achieving the strategic priority of promoting social and economic cohesion within
Croatia, based on an improved overall competitiveness. The Operational Programme (OP) does so in
accordance with eligible areas defined in the IPA Implementing Regulation1 and the priority areas identified in
the Multi-Annual Indicative Programming Document (MIPD)2 for Croatia.
