Ft 412 billion for regional development

According to government plans, an amount of Ft 412 billion is to be secured for regional development subsidies in 2006. This is an increase of 25.6% compared to this year's amount of Ft 328 billion. Therefore, from next year, each farmer may be able to receive an average subsidy of Ft 2 million as opposed to the current Ft 1.6 million. It is, however, yet unsure whether the full amount will be available or only a sum of Ft 401 billion. The potential difference is attributed partly to the fact that all ministries have a mandatory savings of 3%, partly to the exchange rate volatility, and partly to non-EU subsidized costs such as crop intervention.  (NG 1,2) É.C.
