    Reasons for structural reform do not result from the coming round of enlargement and the foreseeable end of the current funding phase. but from the structural change within the economy itself-such as the internationalisation and globalisation of decision-making within the economy, decentralisation and regionalism. Although these trends will have a big influence on the structural development of Europe, they are not entered into in depth here. Cf: European Commission: European Regional Development Concept.
