The president of the Popular Party, Pablo Casado, presented this Thursday in Cáceres the position of the Popular Party on the Common Agrarian Policy and the current negotiations in the European Union, a document worked with the sector and that collects its concerns and needs
He demands that Sánchez stop his government insulting ranchers and farmers, after the labor minister has said that they promote slavery and values that the sector, to which more than 2.5 million Spaniards dedicate themselves, contributes 12% of GDP
He reiterates the commitment of the Popular Party with the food system, with whom he has met every two months and thanks the entire agri-food chain for having given "the chest" in the most difficult days for Spain in the last 100 years in terms of epidemiological pandemics.
He asks that the sector not take away what it already had, in relation to the negotiation of the CAP: "Thanks to you, there has been no shortage of basic foods to feed us and you have not stopped pitching in during the pandemic," he stressed
It explains how the Popular Party governments achieved more than 47,500 million euros in tough CAP negotiations, obtaining for Spain 238 million more, when the EU allocated less money, while Zapatero's PSOE came with 1,300 million less when the EU offered plus
He calls on Minister Planas to clarify what they call "the point and apart of the negotiation of the multi-year financial framework" and demands that the more than 47,000 million euros that the Spanish countryside is asking for come • Remember how Sánchez came to Extremadura to call Serrano ham Iberico, humiliating the pork sector, without negotiating the tariffs of our products with the United States, dedicating itself to missing the country, instead of appearing at the White House to defend wine, oil, ham, etc.
