State Aid: The Authority greenlights the Icelandic regional aid map for 2014–2020



The EFTA Surveillance Authority has today approved the new map of areas eligible for regional investment aid proposed by the Icelandic Government.

The map is defined with reference to the new State Aid Guidelines on regional state aid 2014–2020. The map has been authorized for the period of 1 July 2014 to 31 December 2020.

The areas in Iceland that qualify for regional investment aid cover 35.9% of the total population.

Areas that are not included in the map cannot benefit from regional aid. A more detailed overview of the geographical scope of the areas eligible for regional investment aid is included in the Authority's decision.

Today's approval of the regional aid map is not an authorization of aid measures as such.
