The objectiveof this article is to analyze the performance of these member states, through the 2007-2013 structuralinstruments. The concepts used are the performance of regional development and EU cohesion policy. Thisapproach is based on scientific research and theoretical documentation. The main methods employed were theobservation, the specialty literature and publications. The conclusion of this study is that the EU member stateswith a developed economy received less financial assistance than the other member states, some member stateshave had the ability to fully use the grants provided by the European Union, while other have not succeeded inthis, which generated the request of the state budget.
