Latvian farmers since 2014 have received more than 30 percent or about EUR 560 million from the financing allocated for the Rural Development Program for 2014-2020, the Latvian Agricultural Ministry reported LETA.

The ministry said that Latvia continues successful implementation of the program, investing EU funds in development of agricultural production, education of farmers and innovations.


"Considering the unfavorable weather conditions in 2017, the Agricultural Ministry has provided support to farmers where possible. We have always introduced changes, ensuring more favorable conditions for receiving this support," said Agricultural Minister Janis Duklavs.


As reported, EUR 1.532 billion are available for Latvia under the Rural Development Program for 2014-2020, which is by 11 percent more than in the previous period of 2007-2013.
