GRTU raises priorities for the agriculture sector during MEP meeting


GRTU Council
Member Stephen Galea in representation of the agricultural sector has
participated in a debate organized in view of the upcoming EP elections.

Mr Galea
stated that out of the many funds the Government always told us about, farmers
have just benefitted from a fraction. He argued that they are also enterprises
that work in the agricultural sector and they should also be eligible for funds
like other enterprises. He also argued that the average age amongst farmers is
as more time goes by getting older and we need to help new enthusiasts come
into agriculture. He said that currently we are not giving such an opportunity
as fresh graduates that have no land are not given the opportunity because they
are required to have been already registered as full time farmers for two
years, one of a number of requirement which they would have no possibility to
reach. As GRTU we want agriculture to prosper and we were pleased to see an
interest from a good number of MEPs which we hope to continue meeting even
after the elections.
