The EU supports Farmers in Serbia

The fourth day of the EU Opportunity Week is dedicated to agriculture, the opportunities available in Serbia are presented at the Fair in Novi Sad. The event was opened by the Deputy Head of EU Delegation  to Serbia, Plamena Halacheva, Milica Đurđević, state secretary in the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Management, as well as Milorad Radojević, member of the City Council for the Economy, city of Novi Sad.


Almost 1500 farmers from Serbia have so far used the funds of the European Union – IPARD – but the support does not stop: a new cycle of this program is coming, during which beneficiaries will have another 288 million EU grants available, and another 90 million contributions from the Republic of Serbia.


Halačeva pointed out the importance of this program – the use of IPARD funds in Serbia has changed the situation for the agricultural sector in the country. These grants have restored rural areas, increased productivity, improved market access and promoted sustainable practices.


The EU Week of Opportunities is a unique series of events that provide Serbian citizens with the opportunity to find out everything they are interested in about the available funds in one place for the first time and take advantage of the opportunities to realise their ideas.


Sessions and debates are held in three cities: Belgrade, Niš and Novi Sad and cover different areas – Economy, business, education, youth, sports, culture, media, civil society, local development, green transition, agriculture.
