Estonia will receive 128 million euros (about 153 million U.S. dollars) of structural fund from the European Union this year, the Finance Ministry said on Tuesday.
Twenty-four projects will share the fund by applying for subsidy, the ministry said. Since 2004, Estonia has gained 371 million euros (about 445 million dollars) of structural fund to carry out various projects.
It is reported that the structural fund will be used in human resources, agriculture, fishery, regional development and infrastructure.
The EU structural fund, set up on Jan. 1, 1989, aimed to help develop the least-favored areas within the 25-member bloc.
