The European Union is the biggest donor to our country. So far, through the IPA program, around one billion euros of non-refundable funds have been invested for infrastructure modernization and development. The IPA 3 program, which covers the period 2021-2027, is ongoing. There are also other types of aid, such as the IPARD programs for the modernization of Macedonian agriculture, a new 100 million euros awarded by the EC for macro-financial assistance, a grant of 80 million euros for dealing with the energy crisis. The EU recently announced the package for the enlargement of the Union and the growth plan of the economies of the Western Balkans.
“With this plan alone, Macedonia has a billion euros at its disposal,” the ruling party SDSM announced Thursday.
