Next Previous Measures to support farmers after EU Council of Agriculture HOME • INSIDER EU Ministers for Agriculture
& nbsp & nbspInsider/ΚΥΠΕ & nbsp; & nbsp;
The message not to panic was sent to the rural world on Thursday by the Minister of Agriculture Costas Kadis and the Commissioner for Agricultural Payments, Andreas Kyprianou, as support measures are expected at European level so that the sector can cope with the difficulties it faces due to the pandemic but also the issue of grain due to the war in Ukraine.
In their statements before the start of their meeting at the offices of the Cyprus Organization for Agricultural Payments (KOAP), both Mr. Kyprianou and Mr. Kadis expressed their support for the rural world. They stressed the importance of the cooperation of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development with KOAP so that the decisions to support the rural world are implemented in the most effective way.
Mr Kadis said he would go to the EU Council of Agriculture Ministers on Monday to discuss ways to support the rural world. The measures that will be decided, he said, should be implemented, and their implementation is done through the KOAP.
“There is no reason to panic. “I want to assure the rural people that our daily attention is on how we will support them and that they will wait for more concrete announcements of measures after the Council of Ministers,” he said.
“We expect that in the next period, support will come to our farmers, especially the farmers, who have suffered the most pressure due to the increase in grain prices, so that they can remain sustainable and active,” he added. Mr. Kyprianou said that in these very difficult conditions for the rural world that have arisen, through the coronavirus pandemic but also mainly through the war in Ukraine, there should be coordination in all levels, “so that we can tackle the problems of the rural world.”
“We are most interested in the survival of agricultural enterprises and farms,” he added.
He said that during the meeting, in addition to the problems that he has been informed about through regional gatherings in the last & nbsp; month, by the farmers themselves, which he would convey to the Minister, they would see exactly how they face these problems, “but also how we successfully drive Nea Agrotiki & nbsp; Policy 2023-2027. »
The Commissioner urged the rural world “not to panic”, as there will be & nbsp; decisions that will help, in the right direction. “I am convinced that both at this state level and in the wider EU, there will be decisions that will support and help the problems facing the & nbsp; rural world across Europe,” he said.
Mr. Kadis said that the cooperation of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development with KOAP is excellent, “and we want it to be such that the decisions to support our rural world are transferred from the decision level to the implementation and support level. in the rural world as soon as possible and in the most valid and efficient way “.
Answering a question on the issue of grain shortages and how long the imported ones last, Mr. Kadis said that the legislation recently formed, enables the Government in times of crisis such as the current one, to place its own orders for feed.
After bidding, & nbsp; He said that a quantity of 20,000 tons of corn has already been secured within 48 hours, which will soon arrive in Cyprus with the award of the tender, and another 16,000 tons of barley are expected to be secured in the coming days. & nbsp;
He noted that these quantities that will come will be in stock and will be given by the government to the market only when there is a special reason. “If there is a prolonged crisis, there is no possibility of pumping from the importers of cereals that we would like to reach the farms then these quantities will be granted,” he said. & Nbsp;
Asked for price increases the Minister said the market must work. Since last year, he added, there has been an increase in cereals of 70%, which was logical to pass throughout the agri-food chain. “In fact, as a Ministry, we would like it to pass throughout the agri-food chain and not be shouldered only by the first link in the chain, which is the breeders. That would put them in a very disadvantageous position, so we want the cost to be passed on to everyone, “he said.” What the government has done, he said, is to prepare a tool, which is cereals ceiling by decision of the Council of Ministers and the issuance of a Decree by the Minister of Commerce, so that, if there are phenomena of scandal or excessive profit “we can use this tool to limit exactly these phenomena.”
