Bački Petrovac and Vrbas more training courses result in more European projects

On 29 August 2019, the representatives of the European Affairs Fund of AP Vojvodina, Kristina Bašić and Zoran Pavić, in cooperation with the Vojvodina Development Agency visited the municipalities of Bački Petrovac and Vrbas.
In Bački Petrovac, the hosts were Srdjn Stojanović, assistant president of municipality, and his associates, whereas in the municipality of Vrbas, they were welcomed by Natalija Šipovac, head of the Department for Economy and Development.
A more comprehensive direct cooperation among the representatives of local self-governments, the Fund and the Vojvodina Development Agency was agreed, in spite of a significant progress made regarding the use of EU funds and attraction of foreign investors over the past two years.
The representatives from both municipalities indicated that the European Affairs Fund of AP Vojvodina contributed to the actualisation of submitted project applications, since the frequent visits, initiatives and logistics led to their final realization.
In the municipality of Bački Petrovac, there was a need for repeating the training course “EU Funding Opportunities” because there was a large number of persons interested in contributing to a greater development of their local self-government though that type of education.
