CO-FINANCED DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS
The Port of Sines has been a case of success in taking advantage of Community financing grants towards the most important projects and greater investment value. It began with the first Community Support Framework (QCA) and was strengthened in the QCA II and QCA III program period, when it registered the highest values in terms of number of projects co-financed, coinciding with one of the major developments of the port. Later the QREN - National Strategic Reference Framework, was established as the main source of financing of the Investment Plan of the Port of Sines at a time when the use of other sources of financing was heavily hampered by the existing financial crisis.
The new cycle of structural supports of national scope, for the programming period 2014-2020, called Portugal 2020, still finds itself in an early stage. Notwithstanding APS, along with other national ports, currently participates in important European projects sponsored by the European Commission under the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T), through the financial instrument CEF (Connecting Europe Facility).
