In this we are helped by the Dutch experts who will make plans to create greenhouses of European standard – we are talking about multi-million dollar projects. Their implementation will have a positive impact on the economic situation of the regions where the population grows greens, “- the Minister says.
According to him, the projects will not be funded by the state, and emphasis will be placed on the participation of the private sector. “We will work on several fronts, including through the Partnership Fund.
