Ministers from seven Black Sea countries – Bulgaria, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova, Romania, Russia, Turkey, and Ukraine – are meeting in Bucharest today to endorse the Common Maritime Agenda for the Black Sea. With this, the Black Sea region joins the rest of the sea basins bordering the EU in setting a basin-wide initiative for more, and more sustainable, economic growth.
Launched in 2013, the European Neighbourhood Program for Agriculture and Rural
Development (ENPARD) was developed by the European Union to boost the production of food
in Georgia and to reduce rural poverty.
