  • [01] EU Agriculture Ministers informal meeting in Athens

  • [01] EU Agriculture Ministers informal meeting in Athens

    ANA/MPA---The agricultural diversity and how it will become a competitive advantage will be the only issue to be discussed at the informal meeting of EU Agriculture Ministers in the presence of EU Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development Dacian Ciolos that is held on Tuesday in Athens.

    The main target of the Greek presidency's initiative "aGRidiverstity" is to bring the European farmers and the citizens closer by promoting the wealth and the European farming's diversity and in parallel to raise people's awareness over their common history and their common values.

    Despite the safeguarding and promotion of the agricultural diversity, "aGRidiversity" aims to promote and boost the farming's contribution to the long-term development of the economy, the society and of the environment. The Greek presidency wishes to emphasise on the long-term farming development strategies that are based on the farming diversity with a strong European dimension.

    The aim is, as Greek Agriculture and Food Minister Athanassios Tsaftaris has noted, how the diversity of the productive systems that is also reflected in the European products will be turned into its strategic advantage.

    Approximately 40 representatives of the European media have come to Greece to cover the meeting.

    Today, the farming sector and the farming-food industries offer 46 million job positions, 6 percent of the European GDP and approximately 24 percent of its exports.

    A press conference has been scheduled for 13:00 after the end of the meeting.
