For your information – the NPA annual report 2016
Last year the National Paying Agency under the Ministry of Agriculture (NPA) paid out the amount of support, comprising 1,019 billion euros, which is the largest over the institution‘s  history.  
 
“This ir our joint achievement: by reaching for simplification of proceses and making them more effective as well as by striving to make our country prosperous together“, – noted the Director of the NPA Erikas Bėrontas. According to him, the majority of the NPA clients are already enjoying the results of this work; those who earlier than ever have received the direct support at the same time witnessing a shrinking number of inspectors’ visits.     
 
The NPA will strive to remain a progressive and reliable organisation, constantly looking for solutions how farmers could in a simpler way benefit from support to agricilture, rural development and fisheries.  
 
Aiming to pay out the support as quickly as possible the application administration process will be further automated, the number of applicants, who could be reached electronically, will be expanded, the number of remote controls will be increased and preventive measures will be taken against imposition of sanctions.   
 
While reducing the number of controls more attention will be paid to applicants attributed to the risky groups. By identifying such groups in advance, it will be possible to define cases of illegal declaration and/or cases of inappropriate maintenance  of declared fields, which will allow true farmers to receive bigger payments
 
In the future the internal work processes will be further improved, application evaluation will be speeded up. Special attention will be paid to  ensure that the support reaches honest beneficiaries, preventing possibilities of abuse. „We will strive to ensure that the EU and national support reaches the most viable investment projects of those applicants  who are developing the largest value added  projects“, – pointed out Erikas Bėrontas.    
 
It is a pleasure to share with you our Annual Report 2016, which contains information about the results achieved by the NPA.
