Subvention schemes in the agriculture sector will be compiled based on the regionalization of “Transfer in family’s budgets” agricultural map, upon which will be selected agricultural businesses that will benefit from government’s support. The 2015 scheme predicts support in agricultural production, agro processing processes, investments in enhancing competitiveness and in boosting lending and collaboration among businesses in agriculture sector.
The regionalization of the agricultural production map means that government will provide subventions for farmers who produce the proper agricultural products, which have the highest possibility to grow in a certain area, as described in the agricultural map published by the Ministry of Agriculture.
The governmental fund of subventions in agriculture sector and rural development based on the regionalization of the agricultural production map will assist in the improvement of cultivation technology, plants and harvesting protection, investments in irrigation systems and greenhouses. As announced by Ministry of Agriculture, the subvention scheme contains three basic fields for which will be given funds, which consist in:
- Breeding of livestock, beekeeping and aquaculture
- Stable supply of the market with agricultural products and increase of financial incomes for families in rural areas
- To foster investments and bank’s lending to farmers in agriculture sector, germination of medicinal plants, breeding of livestock, ect.
Another measure undertaken by Ministry of Agriculture in support to farmers relates to the new classifying system of projects submitted by farmers who seek to become part of subventions scheme. Agency for the Agricultural and Rural Development announced that will start applying the process of computerization for the selection of winning projects submitted by farmers. The selection of the winning projects through a computing system will increase transparency regarding the meritocratic classification of projects and will reduce abuses or corruption.
