With the CHF 2.3 million agreement for a project to improve fire safety measures in 138 public schools, the last of a total twelve projects in Latvia has been signed. The funds for this project came from the savings generated by the careful financial management of an already concluded project. In this way, the commitment phase for projects in Latvia has been terminated earlier than planned, with all of the projects currently unfolding in their implementation phase, scheduled to last until mid-2017. Following close upon Lithuania and Malta, Latvia is now the third country in which the earmarked funds have been fully committed. The Enlargement Contribution funds for all of the projects in the States that joined the EU in 2004 are obliged to be committed by 14 June 2012 at the latest.
A more detailed presentation of some of the twelve projects that are being financed within the scope of the Swiss Enlargement Contribution will be given here-below.
