Representatives of the National Paying Agency (NPA) on 29-30 January visited their colleagues in the Rural Support Service (RSS) in Latvia. During the meeting in Riga the experience on support management was exchanged, solutions were sought to improve the functioning of institutions and to strengthen mutual cooperation.
 
Cooperation between neighbouring countries is particularly important with regard to the upcoming new programming period. During the meeting the specialists of the Lithuanian and Latvian paying agencies discussed issues related to the management of direct payments and of the Rural Development Programme support measures; they exchanged best practices in evaluation, administration of applications, control of applicants and beneficiaries; discussed the challenges of implementing new technologies. The participants of the meeting acknowledged that a carefully prepared agenda of the working group meetings, preparation for discussions, intensive and constructive communication during the sessions were useful for making the performance of both institutions more efficient.
 
“We share a common goal of making the management of support as efficient as possible. Cooperation of specialists helps to find solutions to the most difficult problems, so we will continue our meetings in the future”, pinpointed the Director of the NPA Aleksandras Muzikevičius. He also invited the Latvian colleagues from RSS to the conference of the Baltic and Polish paying agencies, that will be held in Lithuania in autumn this year.
