Grants will be provided for the EU Aid Programme for Rural Development in North Cyprus.

Speaking during yesterday’s information meeting, Prime Minister Soyer explained that the government continues its determined works towards harmonization with the EU legislation.
An information meeting on the EU Aid Programme for Rural Development in North Cyprus was held yesterday.
The EU Rural Development Grant Scheme - will provide grants of between 15-thousand and 100-thousand euros for equipment such as milking machines, bulk storage tanks, tractors, cultivation and harvesting implements.
The aid programme is again being funded under the EU Financial Assistance Regulation for Turkish Cypriots.
The information meeting took place at the EU Programme Support Office last night.
Delivering the first speech, the Head of the EU Programme Support Office Alain Bothorel said the project gained its shape with close cooperation established between the EU Commission officials for rural development and Turkish Cypriot experts.

Mr Bothorel said applications for the implementation of the project should be delivered until 6 pm, the 17th of February.

Also speaking, Prime Minister Ferdi Sabit Soyer described the wide participation to the information meeting as a reflection of the strong Turkish Cypriot desire to get prepared for the EU process and become part of the EU itself.
Stating that there had been ups and downs in the realization of the EU Financial Assistance Regulation for Turkish Cypriots when the regulation was first approved by the EU institutions, Mr Soyer noted that new opportunities for the implementation of the Regulation appeared with the opening of the EU Programme Support Office in the north.
Soyer also stressed the importance of providing assistance to agricultural production in the TRNC in terms of raising food standards.
He added that the government has agreed on works necessary to be carried out for harmonization with the EU legislation.

EU AID FOR SCHOOLS IN NORTH CYPRUS INTRODUCES A PROJECT ON CONDUCTIVE EDUCATION

A new EU-funded project on education is on the way.
The Girne Special Education Centre is preparing to implement a project on conductive education, in cooperation with the Lefkosa Special Education Centre.

The project, which is going to operate under the EU aid programme for schools in North Cyprus, aims to introduce conductive education methods in schools.
Conductive education consists of teaching methods which are aimed at improving children’s educational skills and motivating them to achieve their educational goals, with particular focus on special needs.

A contract was signed between the EU Programme Support Office and the Girne Special Education Centre in September last year and the project was introduced with a special event at the Education Centre yesterday.

Providing information about the project, the Director of the Girne Special Education Centre, in charge of the project, Musa Saygi said 5 instructors will be giving conductive education to teachers and parents of children with special needs.
A series of conductive education applications will be practised together with technical and infrastructural works, Saygi added.

Also attending the event, the Minister of National Education and Culture Canan Oztoprak pointed to the fact that the newest educational methods around the world will be brought to the TRNC with contributions from the EU.

The co-chairman of the EU Programme Support Office Alessandra Viezzer for her part said the project has great importance in terms of creating opportunites for Turkish Cypriots to establish cooperation with related institutions in the EU member states.

She informed that the educational project will last for 15 months which will benefit 60 teachers involved, 500 children with special needs and their parents as well as the whole society.
