Rosch: EU Allocates 1 Million Euros for Turkey's Infrastructure

The head of the European Union (EU) Economic and Financial Issues Institute Inci Atac Rosch said during a talk at an education seminar of the Southeastern Anatolia Municipalities Union (GABB) the Union has allocated one million Euros to upgrade Turkey's infrastructure to European standards.

It is wrong to approach EU aid as hot money, said Rosch, adding, "If this aid is expected as money that will be given to us, solve our problems and delivered nobody will be happy about the help." Rosch went on that financial support should be accepted as a tool in order to accelerate Turkey's integration process into the EU and all of these supports will be used to fix Turkey's substandard infrastructure in order to make it reach EU standards.
