The Embassy supports a scheme of small scale projects, thus contributing to local and regional development in the countries. As one of the conditions for the provision of this support, small scale projects must be beneficial to the population in the project area and be carried out by local contributors. The scheme's main objective is to improve the social and economic situation of underprivileged population groups who require small amounts of financial aid in initiating "self-help" projects.
