The NSRF or Enterprise Agreement in the Development Framework, which is always accompanied by a six-year implementation period (such as: 2007-2013, 2014-2020, 2021-2027), is the main strategic plan for the recovery of the regions of Greece. In order to achieve this recovery, the European Structural and Investment Funds of the European Union, otherwise known as ESIF, are helping.
During the implementation of the NSRF, through the guides of the programs, all the needs that arise are reflected, in order for the country to get back on its feet and face the economic and social crisis that we have been going through in recent years.
But what was happening before the NSRF?
Before 1981 for the period: 1976-1981, all public investments were financed purely from national resources.
In 1981 Greece joined the European Community.
From 1982 until 1987, the first phase of the Community regional policy was created. There we meet the well-known at that time IOP (Mediterranean Integrated Programmes) with an opening date of 1985. The total budget for the IOP was 2,101,933 thousand ECU in 1986 prices.
In the second phase, which starts from 1988, the goal of economic and social cohesion is included in the ESA (single European act).
Thus, after the above reform, the A CSF (Community Support Framework) was created with a duration from 1989 to 1993. The objectives of the CSF were achieved with 12 sectoral & 13 regional programs. The total amount allocated was ECU 15.5 billion.
Then, the time period from 1994 to 1999 is associated with the B CSF. The total made available was 29.72 billion ECU and was distributed in five development axes.
Finally, for the period from 2000 to 2006, there is support from the European Union's Structural Funds (Structural Funds) in accordance with the European Regional Policy and the formulation of the 3rd CSF. The total made available amounted to 48.30 billion Euros.
