Agreements on Cooperation between partners from Sweden and municipalities of Vojvodina have been signed at the Office for European Affairs

On the basis of long cooperation between the Office for European Affairs partners from Sweden, Agreements on Cooperation have been signed between the representatives of institutions of Budisava, Indjija, Sombor and Novi Sad and the Swedish foundation AFB for 2010. It is the continuation of cooperation and the value of this year’s project is €40,000.

“The same as last year, it is my pleasure to announce the project of support to Vojvodinian schools in relation to computer centre equipment. This time the aid is to be spent on the procurement of computers and training of not only children, but a number of citizens’ associations as well, for whom the Swedish support may be significant. Likewise, this year we are launching an initiative on a project to support equestrian sports in our province. The project will be implemented in cooperation with associations and educational institutions of Sweden, where this sport is certainly important”, said Predrag Novikov, Director of the Office for European Affairs.

The representatives of municipalities, i.e. schools involved in the project have announced that this year they are going to cooperate with the Swedes on football, cookery, organisation of joint camps, etc in addition to computer courses and learning of foreign languages.
