EU consults stakeholders on ENPARD IV programme priorities

Over 100 representatives of EU partners, civil society organizations, private sector, academia and experts gathered at a conference in Tbilisi on 17 April 2019, to discuss the upcoming fourth phase of the European Neighbourhood Programme for Agriculture and Rural Development (ENPARD).

The conference aimed at informing and engaging all relevant stakeholders in the process of defining ENPARD IV programme priorities in two key areas – Rural Development and Food Safety / Sanitary and Phytosanitary (SPS) Sector.

The consultation was opened by Mr Vincent Rey, Head of Cooperation of the EU Delegation to Georgia:  “Over the past several years, Georgia has achieved a notable progress in agriculture and rural development and the European Union is proud to have been a part in this success by provided extensive support to make Georgia’s agriculture more competitive and to improve living standards in rural areas. Looking forward, we would like to see more Georgian farmers, cooperatives, and small and medium size enterprises better equipped to produce high quality products and export to the EU. We also support better infrastructure and services, growth of tourism, more effective local public-private partnerships and entrepreneurship in rural areas. This will help create new employment opportunities and will maximize the country’s economic growth. Under ENPARD IV, EU will continue providing advice and support to help Georgia realise this potential.” – stated Mr Rey.

Action has been running the ENPARD Communication Unit (ECU) since 2016, managing the overall communication of ENPARD by highlighting its activities and results and coordinating the communication, information and visibility activities of all the ENPARD’s components and related projects.
