    Abstract

    This document is a report prepared for the Portuguese Secretary of State for European Affairs to help the ultraperipheral regions to interpret the potential benefits and obligations for the ultraperipheral regions of Azores and Madeira of the new Art. 299.2 in the Treaty of the European Union. It analyses the economic situation and special ultraperipheral needs of the archipelagos and discusses approaches to improve their level of development. It proposes to use the new article as the basis for the creation of a new contract with the EU, in which the ultraperipheral regions guarantee their commitment to move towards self-sustainability in exchange for financial assistance and derogations from Community law.
