Focal area: Good governance and institution building
Programme: Improve the main border crossings with Hungary (Horgos - Phase 2) and Croatia (Betrovic)
The new FRY Federal and Republican authorities have quickly re-stabilised relationships with their neighbouring countries. Potential regional economic developments will undoubtedly lead to larger traffic flows between FRY and its neighbouring countries creating stresses along the main trading routes and key border crossing points, especially on the main European corridors. Action needs to be taken immediately to improve the most critical border-crossing facilities. The FRY authorities have identified the Horgos crossing between Serbia and Hungary and the Batrovic crossing with Croatia as their first priority.
The project will be prepared in full compliance with the requirements from several departments of the FRY Administration involved namely: Interior Ministry (for Policing and border guarding and immigration), Customs Administration (for customs financial implications), Ministry of Agriculture (for Phytosanitary and veterinarian inspection) and Ministry of Construction and Urbanisation (for physical transport facilities).
1.3.1 Improve the Horgos and the Batrovic border crossing facilities (approx. €5 million and €1 million)
Funds would be provided for works, equipment and supplies to process more efficiently cars, buses and trucks at these two key border crossings.
