The All-Wales Programme Monitoring Committee (PMC) is responsible for monitoring the implementation of the Convergence and Regional Competitiveness and Employment (ERDF and ESF) programmes 2007–2013 in Wales.
The Committee meets around 3-4 times a year at various locations across Wales, with meeting papers available on this section of the website.
