Map of Portugal: Convergence and Competitiveness Objectives 2007–2013

This map of Portugal shows the regions covered by the Convergence and Regional Competitiveness and Employment objectives of the Structural Funds and instruments for the period 2007–2013. Regions eligible for the Convergence objective are those with a per capita gross domestic product (GDP) of less than 75 % of the EU average. Regions with a GDP only slightly above the threshold because of the statistical effect of the enlarged European Union benefit from a phasing-out regime. The former ‘Objective 1’ regions benefit from a phasing-in system under the Regional Competitiveness and Employment objective.
