The Centers for development of the eight planning regions of the country, on 14.10.2015, organized by the German Society for Technical Cooperation-GIZ Red Program and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, before numerous participants of the international community presented accepted regional projects in the framework of Scheme for financial support. A total of 10 projects were approved, 8 projects for measure 1 - Regional projects for development of the regions, and 2 projects from measure 2 - among regional projects. In total for the development of the projects were allocated 300,000 Euros, or separately 30,000 Euros for each project, while the budget for the implementation of all projects is 38 million Euros.
