Kjuel Nielsen specified that the agreement between Serbia and Denmark should become operational in autumn this year.

She outlined that the goal of the programme is to create new jobs and improve fruit growing revenues, as well as to promote knowledge and application of European standards in the field of fruit growing, which will increase the value of products and their exports.
