Bank of Valletta, MEUSAC and the Ministry for Resources and Rural Affairs are presenting a series of seminars focusing on measures of the Rural Development Plan. This collaboration ensures better dissemination of information to potential beneficiaries of the various schemes.
The Rural Development Plan (2007-2013) supported by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) is based on the following four priority axis: improving competitiveness; environment / land management diversification; quality of life; and the Leader approach. It consists of 18 measures and has a financial allocation amounting to €100 Million.
The Ministry for Resources and Rural Affairs has recently announced that another 8 new measures will be launched in March. Following the success of the information session on Measure 121 (Investment in Agricultural Holdings), held last December specifically for the benefit of farmers and livestock breeders, two new seminars are being scheduled for the 18 and 20 March.
The first seminar will focus on the scheme providing assistance for the use of advisory services (Measure 114), while the second information session, will tackle Measure 123, which focuses on adding value to agricultural products.
Both sessions will be held at the BOV Centre in Santa Venera. Further details as well as the seminar programmes and registration forms are available from MEUSAC offices. For further assistance, kindly contact Brian Pace on email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 22003300.
