La Belgique est le pays le moins transparent en matière d'allocation des fonds structurels européens, après la Bulgarie http://is.gd/jAQvF
Lack of transparency hides details of funding
The Bureau has created an index to show how good each of the 27 member states is at providing transparent detail about the Structural Funds.
However, the levels of transparency differ markedly between the states. This proved a major problem when compiling a database detailing the recipients of the Structural Funds.
Compiling the data was made all the more difficult by misinformation, incomplete data and overly complicated websites, some of which are themselves funded by Brussels.
Perhaps surprisingly some of the most transparent states are new EU members such as Slovakia and Poland. Both made their data available for download with clear indications about how much EU money was being given to beneficiaries, and are therefore at the top of our index.
In comparison, Bulgaria, which is at the bottom, often make only scanned, sometimes unreadable documents available to the public. In order to get a full list of beneficiaries the Bureau had to go directly to the Bulgarian authorities to get useable data.
