Macedonia - Bulgaria Cross Border Programme

The implementation of the Macedonia - Bulgaria CBC Programme will be financed by the new "European Territorial Cooperation" objective through the IPA Fund and co-financed by Bulgaria and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia through contributions from state budgets. The resulting single pot of money is spent according to a single set of rules and on the basis of a common benefit approach which requires the involvement of joint programming and management structures. Thus IPA promotes enhanced cooperation and progressive economic integration and coherence between EU and candidate countries.

The global objective of the regional co-operation across sectors and administrative units is: Sustainable Development in the Border Region in Support of the Wider European Cooperation and Integration Efforts.
