Outside body

Highlands and Islands Programme Monitoring Committee


Following the success of the 1994-99 Objective 1 Programme, the economy of the Highlands and Islands has improved to such an extent that the region is no longer eligible for Objection 1.  However, in recognition of the difficulties still being faced by this large, peripheral area, a special transitional programme has been put in place.  The Programme Monitoring Committee was established to oversee the strategic implementation of the programme, and includes representatives from the regional bodies, the social partners, the Scottish Government and the European Commission.
