AIPA: First three programs were implemented this year to help farmers
During this year, three programs were implemented for the first time to help farmers, said the interim director of the Agency for Intervention and Payments in Agriculture, Diana Coşalîc. According to her, over one billion lei were allocated for this sector of activity, which is 45 percent more compared to the same period last year, Radio Moldova reports.
"This year, as of September 1, 1 billion 100 million lei were disbursed to the accounts of agricultural producers. More than 70% of the financial resources have already been allocated. We are talking about the reimbursement of excise duties on diesel. It is the first time that AIPA implements such a mechanism. For the first semester, 2111 applications were submitted. This year, the project contributing to land improvement was implemented. And the last program to support the authorities and small and medium businesses is the LIDER program", said the interim director of AIPA.
Also, Diana Coşalîc spoke about startups, but also about the money allocated to local authorities for infrastructure development projects.
