Chisinau, 26 March /MOLDPRES/- Parliament approved today in the second reading the draft amendment to the law on subsidy principles in the development of agriculture and rural environment.
According to the draft, the government will be empowered to approve a procedure for the payment of subsidies to applicants whose activities correspond to the measure to stimulate lending to agricultural producers by commercial banks and non-bank financial intervention institutions.
Also, for 2020-2021, the obligation to present certificates attesting to the absence of debts to taxes and fees to the national public budget will be eliminated, in order to be able to benefit from subsidies.
