Kanjiža wants to help municipalities with EU projects

As part of regular meetings with representatives of local self-governments in Vojvodina, the representatives of the European Affairs Fund, Milan Čežek and Zoran Pavić, as well as the representatives of the Development Agency of Vojvodina, Živko Planić and Tanja Simić, visited the municipalities of Čoka and Kanjiža on 6 December 2018.
In Čoka, their hosts were Stana Gyömbér, president of the municipality, and Mihajlo Popović, assistant president of the municipality.
At the request of the municipal leaders, an agreement was made to hold the training course “EU Funding Opportunities” in due time to train the participants in EU fund management and individual development of project proposals, so that they could position them strategically within defined priorities and measures.
In Kanjiža, their hosts were Róbert Fejsztámer, president of the municipality, and Kornélia Fejsztámer, head of department, and their associates.
The municipality of Kanjiža, as one of the leading municipalities in application submission and EU project implementation, was interested in helping other local governments which were in need of enhancing their participation in future calls under the Cross-Border Cooperation Programmes.
An agreement was made to enhance the direct cooperation between the representatives of local self-governments with the European Affairs Fund and the Vojvodina Development Agency so that the municipalities could be better informed about modern trends, calls and tools that could help them, on the one hand, attract foreign investments and on the other hand, maximize the use of EU funds.
