The amount of funds allocated for Malta for the solidarity burden sharing on asylum, immigration and borders is increasing dramatically and has reached now cruise-speed, the European Commission said. Compared to the very low amount allocated in 2004 (€111.840), the EC financial support reached a much higher amount in 2007 (€7.1 million) and in 2008 (€12 million).This summary of the funds allocated for Malta follows a visit to Malta by Mr Jacques Barrot, EU Commissioner responsible for Justice, Freedom and Security.
The General Programme “Solidarity” 2007 – 2013 incorporates four funds with a total of €126, 071.987. This amount does not include additional envelopes such as emergency measures under the European Refugee Fund and specific action under the External Borders Fund.
One Maltese project has been selected for welfare services in closed centres which is being implemented by the Ministry for Justice and Home Affairs. The Commission is contributing for the amount of €307.158.
