2000-2006 Interreg IIIA Gibraltar/Morocco Programme
The Interreg IIIA Programme is a trans-frontier Programme which aims to develop cross border co-operation between Gibraltar and Morocco. The 2000-2006 Programme follows-on from the 1994-99 Interreg IIA Programme.
The aim of the Programme is to overcome the specific problems arising from Gibraltar being a maritime border of the European Union and the specific problems arising from the comparative isolation of Gibraltar from the member state and in relation to the European Union as a whole.
The Programme funds can support activities in the following areas:
Priority 1 is broken into 3 Measures.
Measure 1(a): Tourism and Transport
Measure 1(b): Cultural and Natural Heritage
Measure 1(c): Research and Technological Department
Priority 2 – Measure 1: Business Skills Training of the Development of Co-operation Actions
In addition to these Programme measures there are four horizontal themes which cut across all activities.
The total allocation of the 2000-2006 Interreg IIIA Programme is some €0.85 million (£0.52 million). Of this total, €0.42 (£0.26 million) is provided for by ERDF and a further €0.42 (£0.26 million) is provided by the Government of Gibraltar. (Using an exchange rate of £1 = €1.62). The Programme does not include any private sector contributions, any funds levered-into the Programme would be additional to the public contribution.
The following table summaries the total allocation and current commitment under each of the measures, broken down by the different sources.
