EU provides €317,000 to support West Bank farmers


JERUSALEM, February 2, 2018 (WAFA) – The European Union announced on Friday its contribution of about €317,000 to the Palestinian Authority to support Palestinian farmers and agro-businesses in the West Bank.

A statement by the EU representative office in Jerusalem said the eligible beneficiaries are farmers and agro-businesses in the West Bank directly affected by the Israeli occupation, and particularly farmers in Area B and C.

“This support will help the farmers to restart, repair or replace their damaged businesses through different activities including acquisition of agricultural supplies, rehabilitation of land and other small infrastructure works,” the statement said.  

About 61 farmers are benefiting from the program in the occupied West Bank.
