Total Croatia News



ZAGREB, Sept 25, 2020 – Agriculture Minister Marija Vuckovic on Friday attended the signing of 29 new contracts, worth HRK 9.4 million, with beneficiaries from five Slavonian counties for investments in cattle breeding.

Contracts worth more than 805 million kuna have been signed, funding worth HRK 545 million has been paid and 495 investment projects have been signed as part of the Rural Development Programme in Brod-Posavina County alone, which Vuckovic visited today.

One such project is the construction of a daycare centre in Sibinj, which the minister opened today.

EU funds are being used to build, renovate and equip some 200 kindergartens and a playground in rural areas, projects worth more than a billion kuna.

“There are 12 such projects in Brod-Posavina County for which we have agreed support worth HRK 57.6 million. The ministry cares about investments of this kind, which at first glance do not have anything to do with agriculture. The government wants to create conditions for people in rural areas to live well, and we have been working intensively on that by defining measures and policies that are mostly financed with EU funds,” she said.

The minister today also opened a congress of sawmill owners in Slavonski Brod.
