THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Whereas:

(1)

Pursuant to Article 1(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1083/2006 establishing a Cohesion Fund the Cohesion Fund contributes to strengthening the economic and social cohesion of the Community in the interests of promoting sustainable development.

(2)

Pursuant to Article 5(2) of Regulation (EC) No 1083/2006 the Member States eligible for funding from the Cohesion Fund shall be those whose per capita gross national income (GNI), measured in purchasing power parities and calculated on the basis of Community figures for the period 2001-2003, is less than 90 % of the average GNI of the EU-25.

(3)

Pursuant to Article 8(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1083/2006 the Member States eligible for funding from the Cohesion Fund in 2006 and which would have continued to be eligible had the eligibility threshold remained at 90 % of average GNI of the EU-15, but which lose eligibility because their nominal per capita GNI will exceed 90 % of average GNI of the EU-25 average measured and calculated according to Article 5(2) of that Regulation, are also eligible, on a transitional and specific basis, for financing by the Cohesion Fund.

(4)
