The European Union and Denmark have provided around €6 million for the implementation of 16 social and public infrastructure projects in Area C. The contribution came through the European Union Area C Development Programme in the West Bank.

The steering committee meeting included the Palestinian Minister of Local Government, HE Majdi Al-Saleh, European Union Head of Cooperation, Gerhard Krause, and the Representative Office of Denmark in Ramallah. It was held at the Municipal Development and Lending Fund (MDLF) to review and endorse the selected localities and respective social and public infrastructure projects.
