The project has a total value of 1.575.580 MKD, funds that will renew access roads to arable land in four Municipalities in the South-East planning region, in the Municipality of Bosilovo, Bogdanci, Gevgelija and Novo Selo and will provide access to a total of 278 hectares of fertile agricultural land.
In the coming period, the Centre for development of the South-East planning region will receive additional funds that will enable revitalization of access roads to agricultural areas and other settlements in order to meet the requirements of other Municipalities in the region, which are from great importance for agricultural producers in the South-East planning region.
Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance (IPA) is part of the package for external relations. IPA and other elements of the package are a great opportunity for streamlining and simplifying the procedures of the European Commission and improving the coherence and coordination of the activities of the Commission.
