Bulgaria will be able to carry out joint projects
From the next program period Bulgaria will be able to carry out joint projects with more neighboring countries under the Program of the European Commission for Southeastern Europe.
This program involves Cyprus, Albania, Macedonia and Greece. The program has a budget of about EUR 80 M and will be useful for the development of cross-border cooperation between these countries. This cooperation will be discussed next year.
So far, Bulgaria was allowed to participate only in the Danube Strategy for cross-border cooperation to provide opportunities to Bulgaria, Romania and Serbia to prepare joint projects with which to stimulate the development of border regions.
