Vučković said that projects worth HRK 1.18 billion had been agreed so far for this county and that most of this amount had been paid out. She said that this had helped farmers maintain and develop their production during the times of the coronavirus pandemic and earthquakes.
An additional HRK 1.2 billion in aid has been paid out from other programmes since 2014, which makes it a total of HRK 2.4 billion, the minister stressed.
Vučković said that new measures for Sisak-Moslavina County were also in the pipeline, including a further HRK6.5 million “to encourage new demographic trends”, and additional aid to help farmers cope with increased costs due to the rise in energy and mineral fertilizer prices.
Sisak-Moslavina County Prefect Ivan Celjak said he was confident the ministry would continue to be a partner to the farmers in repairing the earthquake damage, increasing production and marketing their products.
