EUR 150,000 was allocated from appropriations designated to the Ministry of Agriculture. The funds will be used to pay for export permits, translate certificates and organise visits of third country officials who grant export permits. Lithuanian business people had asked to address these issues and the funding will enable Lithuania to enter new markets.
