"I categorically state that there is no loss under the Rural Development Program 2007-2013”, said Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Food Yavor Gechev in connection with the information circulated in the media that the country has lost more than BGN 400 million. “Yes, it is true that we have received reports from the European Commission about some projects of 2012 and in particular such municipal projects for granted advances. I mean clearly that no matter what period of time is in question; we will fight for every euro and will argue about any point in the reports. This is money that is needed to Bulgarian agriculture, and we will defend our rights, said Deputy Minister Gechev. He said that the Bulgarian authorities are in constant communication with the Commission, so receiving reports and giving opinions from Bulgaria is a normal part of the partnership dialogue.
