More than 300 farming cooperatives will come together in Georgia on Friday for a fair organised as part of the European Neighbourhood Program for Agriculture and Rural Development (ENPARD). The fair takes place in the town of Akhaltsikhe, in southwestern Georgia.
Around 40 companies providing agricultural services in the region will display their products and promote their services to local farmers and agricultural cooperatives. Various official bodies will also be represented at the fair. 
All cooperatives have an opportunity to win special prizes from the organisers of the fair, such as new equipment and farming tools.
The ENPARD program has been supporting Georgia’s agriculture and rural development since 2013, and is composed of a variety of aid modalities, from direct budget support to the Government, through technical assistance and small grants to NGOs. The total budget for ENPARD in Georgia, covering the period of 2013-2019, is €102 million.
