Today, during the Agri-Food Forum of the PP Casado calls for a reduction in labor, bureaucratic and fiscal costs to help companies in the Spanish countryside.
The president of the Popular Party, Pablo Casado, has chaired the Forum "Popular with the Spanish food system", which has analyzed the current problems of the agri-food sector with the main representatives of sector associations.
He reproaches that the Government has approved "at last" although "with enough errors" the modification of the Agri-Food Chain Law that was approved by the Popular Party and to which they were obliged as a transposition of a Community Directive
He explains that "when there are companies that have liquidity problems, they must be encouraged to maintain employment" and asks that "cooperatives have the necessary flexibility to stay open"
He assures that the Popular Party prefers "many companies paying less taxes, before they have to fire workers to go unemployment" • It praises the Spanish agri-food industry as one of the Spanish emblems and with a significant impact on the creation of job.
It calls for social recognition for the entire primary and distribution sector, which represents 12% of GDP and employs 750,000 workers. "This sector deserves respect from the Government and the appreciation of all Spaniards for how it has worked in this crisis," he highlights.
Remember that the Popular Party "has always been clear that we must support the Spanish countryside, the fishing sector and the entire primary sector, which" are now very concerned "with the negotiation of the Multiannual Financial Framework.
He underlines that Spain “cannot admit” that the negotiation of the European funds for the recovery supposes a reduction of the funds of the Common Agrarian Policy.
"We do not admit cuts in aid to the CAP. In the previous period there was also talk of losses of up to 15 percent and the PP government fought the battle and raised € 47.5 billion in funds. ”
He shows his concern about the trade war and its effect on tariffs on Spanish agri-food products. "Spain is interested in maintaining a privileged diplomatic relationship with countries such as the United States to avoid tariffs that give the sector its finishing touch," he stresses.
