Johannes Hahn, EU Commissioner for Regional Policy
Commenting on the ESPON`s benefits to the EU, Commissioner Hahn said: "ESPON provides the European Commission with a lot of information and studies dealing with territorial cooperation. This is exactly the benefit we have out of ESPON. The advantage of ESPON is that there are lot of member states participating not only from the European Union but also outside like Switzerland, Norway, Iceland and others. That’s why we have a lot of data available for the European Union, for the European Commission. For instance the Fifth Cohesion Report is based on a lot of data given by ESPON".
