Thanks to the Czech support Moldovan farmers are better able to compete on the EU market

Czech development projects help Moldovan farmers to compete on the European markets. Although it may seem that organic agriculture and wine education projects have a different focus, their common aim – strengthening the competitiveness of the Moldovan agriculture – connects them together. Czech development activities thus accompany farmers in school, on the field, when dealing with state authorities as well as on the market. This trend of adopting a complex approach towards development activities is expected to continue in the year 2016 as confirmed by the implementers of the Official Development Assistance (ODA) projects of the Czech Republic at a coordination meeting with the CzDA experts.
