Sinn Féin councillor Dermot Nicholl has welcomed the announcement from the Special European Union Programmes Body that BREXIT will not affect the delivery of any programmes in the pipeline.
Cllr. Nicholl said “The SEUPB says it’s Business as usual for Peace IV & Interreg VA Funding programmes.”
“I very much welcome this statement as I am involved on both these panels and know at first hand the great work they deliver on.”
“The SEUPB, having received guidance from the Executive’s Finance Minister on the implications of the recent referendum decision in which a majority in the North voted to Remain, will continue to implement the delivery of PEACE IV and INTERREG VA in its role as Managing Authority for the Programmes.”
He added “It will be welcome news to the communities and organisations who stand to benefit from these programmes that the Irish Government and the Executive remain committed to the successful implementation of the PEACE and INTERREG Programmes.”
