EUR 30 million boost cooperation between Bulgaria and Turkey

August 25, 2014

Nearly EUR 30 million is to be allotted under the Bulgaria-Turkey cross-border cooperation program in the new programming period 2014-2020. Projects in Haskovo, Yambol and Burgas districts are to receive financing under this programme.

Turkey has come up with the proposal that part of the financial resource of the programme can be used to fulfill the targets of the four-year agreement between Bulgaria and Turkey aimed at preserving and socializing the cultural and historical heritage in the trans-border regions.

The programme covers a territory of 29,000 square kilometers on both sides of the border and a population of 1.5 million people.
