Four new PNDR measures might be launched in September says Agriculture Minister Ciolos
“We are also intending to take the steps for the development of rural tourism and microenterprises as well as those for subsistence farms and young farmers. It all depends on the developments in the preparations of the access guides and procedures,” said Ciolos.
MADR launched the first PNDR measures on March 3, 2008 and they regard modernising farm holdings, increasing added value of agricultural and fishery products and village development.
There are 678 eligible projects in all worth some RON 1.33 billion. As many as 341 projects submitted in the March session worth RON 635.84 million and 337 projects submitted in the April session worth RON 702 million were declared eligible.
Under this programme, Romania will receive more tan 8 billion euros for rural development from the European Union throughout 2013, provided from the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.
Adding up to the EU funds will be 20% of them contributed as co-funding by the Romanian Government.
