Urban poles may narrow differences to EU

The role of the urban poles is to narrow the differences between the Romanian urban development and the European Union countries as much as possible, Prime Minister’s advisor on European funds issues Nicolae Rotileanu told a news conference in the northern city of Satu Mare on September 21.
The development by centres is a commitment made by Romania and the national and regional poles seek to create priority lanes for the European programmes, he said.
The Romanian Government decided at its sitting on Sept. 12 that 13 cities become poles of urban development in order to benefit from European development funds under the Regional Operational Programme 2007-2013.

Thus, the cities of Arad, Baia-Mare, Bacau, Braila, Galati, Deva, Oradea, Pitesti, Ramnicu-Valcea, Satu Mare, Sibiu, Suceava and Targu-Mures will be given priority in the assignment of such funds.
The urban development poles will play the role of a link between the growth poles (the cities of Brasov, Cluj-Napoca, Constanta, Craiova, Iasi, Ploiesti and Timisoara) and the other small and medium-sized towns of the urban system, in order to smooth and prevent the tendency to imbalanced development within the region they are part of. They will also contribute to curbing the level of concentration of population and labour in the big cities and to the establishment of a space structure that should boost the territorially-balanced economic development. The investments made in the urban development poles will cut the labour migration to the big urban areas.
The urban development poles are financed by 20% of the financial sources relevant to the priority axis no. 1 on the development of the cities’ sustainable development belonging to the Regional Operational Programme 2007-2013.
