EU projects will be implemented in Transcarpathia
The projects in the framework of the EU and the International Visegrad Fund programs will be implemented in Transcarpathia
This is envisaged by the tripartite cooperation agreement between the Transcarpathian Regional State Administration, the government of Prešov self-governing region (Slovakia) and Pardubice Region (Czech Republic). On Saturday, September 14, in Czech Pardubice, the leaders of the aforementioned regions signed a memorandum on the development of trilateral relations and cooperation.
This important for the development of three regions document was signed by the Head of the Transcarpathian Regional State Administration Oleksandr Ledyda, the Head of Prešov self-governing region Peter Hudik and the Chairman of Pardubice region Martin Netolitski.
The idea of formalization of the relations is attributed to both affinity of languages, traditions, family relations between residents of the regions and the importance of international cooperation in the process of European unification.
The parties agreed to develop trilateral cooperation, especially in the areas of regional development, tourism, economic development and support for small and medium businesses. Also, they promise to pay attention to culture, education, sports, and transportation.
In addition to the traditional exchange of experience and information, the memorandum provides for the use of financial resources in the framework of the EU, the International Visegrad Fund programs and grants.
The heads of the above regions are convinced that the agreement will attract additional funds to each of them. Transcarpathia, in particular, hopes for the revival of economic relations with the Czech Republic. Today, in terms of investments in our region, the Czech Republic ranks 12th: there are 77 Ukrainian-Czech enterprises in the region, with 9.2 million U.S. dollars investments.
