At a meeting of the Bulgarian government, the results of state support for agricultural producers in the country in March 2021 were considered. Bulgarian Prime Minister B. Borisov said that since the beginning of the month, Bulgarian agricultural producers have received subsidies totaling 83,5 million Bulgarian levs (about 42 million euros). The recipients of the funds were farms specializing in the production of vegetables and fruits, a total of about 12,5 thousand farmsteads.
The Minister of Agriculture, Food Industry and Forestry D. Taneva, in turn, noted that the average size of the subsidy increased by 55% compared to the previous period.
According to the minister, a significant increase in the average size of subsidies became possible not only due to an increase in the total amount of funding, but also due to tougher control by the Ministry of Agriculture and the state fund "Agriculture", which is the manager of subsidies.
