An EU grant of EUR 8 million, aimed at restoring the livelihoods of the most vulnerable farming families, was announced at a ceremony here today.

Agriculture is the backbone of the rural economy in Serbia and an important source of income for the majority of the rural population. Damage and losses to the agriculture sector are estimated at EUR 228 million.
