Chisinau, 25 March /MOLDPRES/ - Prime Minister Ion Chicu has asked the Agriculture, Regional Development and Environment Ministry (MADRM) to include an instrument of subsidization in agriculture and rural environment for the people who returned to Moldova from the Diaspora and are willing to invest in the farming sector. The PM made this proposal, after competent minister Ion Perju had presented a draft on amendments to the normative framework to this end. 

„A separate line must be for the citizens who have returned or will return home from the Diaspora, given the situation triggered by the spread of the new-type coronavirus COVID-19. They should be able to work and for this, resources must be used from the agriculture subsidization fund. We encourage people to start businesses in this sector and the state will support them on this difficult period,’’ Ion Chicu said.   

At the same time, the official asked the Finance Ministry to complete the fund of subsidization in the farming sector with the sum needed namely for this category of citizens – potential beneficiaries. ‘’We will give final touches to all procedures on the days to come, so that, in early next week, we inform about what sum it is about,’’ the prime minister noted.      

At the today’s meeting, Agriculture, Regional Development and Environment Minister Ion Perju unveiled amendments to more principles of subsidization of agriculture and rural environment. 

Among these amendments, there is the extension of the age ceiling for young farmers from 35 to 40 years, so that they fit the programme on the providing of subsidies in advance, decision-making transparency, facilities for some categories of beneficiaries, direct payments, simplification of the eligibility criteria, etc.
