EU projects supported through the 2007–2013 programmes have assisted some 604,500 participants.

Over 204,100 have been supported to gain qualifications and over 64,700 helped into work. In addition, over 34,700 (gross) jobs and over 11,900 enterprises have been created.

The performance of the programmes has been closely monitored by the All-Wales Programme Monitoring Committee, and we are on track to exceed targets agreed with the European Commission.

Organisations in Wales have also benefited by delivering an activity of these EU projects; as at 31 January 2016, projects with completed procurement exercises have been awarded contracts worth £1.9bn to organisations, of which over £1.2bn (67% of contract value) is to the private sector and over £187m (10%) to the third sector.
