According to the WBIF Annual Report 2013, after five years of operation the WBIF pipeline has matured to the point where a substantial number of projects are now under construction. In 2013, the Steering Committee met twice and approved 24 grants distributed across all 7 beneficiaries in the Western Balkans. A total of 178 grants for an overall value of €302 million are now approved within the project pipeline, representing a total potential investment of over 13 billion. It is significant that a number of the new grants were allocated to support further preparation of existing WBIF projects.

A total of 15 project applications were received as a result of the 11th Call for Projects. These are either new proposals with a clear regional dimension, or proposals in support of existing projects. For a breakdown by country and sector, please consult the table below.
