The fruit and vegetable sector support project was approved in January of this year, and in June the World Bank started its implementation. It is noted that one of the stages provides for the purchase of seeds, seedlings, water-saving technologies, as well as equipment for processing fruits and vegetables. In addition, the allocated funds will build vegetable stores and greenhouses.

The project will also support research institutes in developing new methods for growing fruit and vegetable crops, plus their storage and processing after harvesting.
