CONT mission to Latvia and Lithuania


The Committee on Budgetary Control (CONT) decided to send a fact-finding mission to Latvia and Lithuania from 3 to 5 April 2018. The objective of the mission was twofold: to verify the use of structural fund assistance to, primarily, Latvia and to verify the progress made in decommissioning the Ignalina Nuclear Power Plant. The latter also constitutes a follow-up to the CONT mission in 2012.

The CONT Delegation visited a variety of structural fund projects in Latvia and Lithuania and was, in general, satisfied with the implementation. The CONT Delegation paid particular attention to the use of financial instruments.
