About Programme

The implementation of the current CBC Programme will be financed by the new “European Territorial Cooperation” objective through the IPA Fund and co-financed by Bulgaria and Republic of Macedonia through contributions from state budgets. The resulting single pot of money will have to be 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 will promote enhanced cooperation and progressive economic integration and coherence between EU and candidate countries.

The programming document drafted jointly by the two countries through a large partnership with national, regional and local stakehloders was approved by the European Commission on 14 December 2007. It sets out the general framework of intervention of IPA in the Programme cross-border area.

The eligible area for the CBC Programme between Bulgaria and Republic of Macedonia covers a territory of 18 736 sq. km with total population of 1 065 605 people. The overall borderline length is 165 km.
