Notice about IPARD Call

We want to inform the potential users that the Agency for paying in Agriculture, Fisheries and Rural Development has announced on their official website on August 30th, that there will not be tendering for IPARD measures (except for Measure 202 “Preparation and implementation of local rural development strategies”, which will be open from 16th September to October 18th), the main reasons for that is the large number of submitted registration on previous IPARD tenders , whose total demand exceeds the amount of aid currently available funds. By the end of the 2013th The Agency will not initiate new tenders until processing all applications they have already received. Thereafter, the Agency for paying in Agriculture, Fisheries and Rural Development in collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture will agree further action, and the public will be duly informed. The Ministry of Agriculture is working intensively on creating measures that will be included in the Rural Development Programme for the period from 2014th to 2020th, which will provide investors considerably more features than the IPARD program for investment in rural development, and by the end of this year there will be provided more details about opportunities for co-investment in rural areas for the upcoming period.
