Agriculture asks the European Commission to maintain the Posei aid on La Palma in 2022

The minister of Agriculture, Livestock and fishing, Luis Planas, has sent a letter to the European Commissioner for Agriculture, Janusz Wojciechowski, in which requests that the aid of the Posei linked to the commercialization of the products can be received even if they have not been able to be put on the market due to the ash or lack of irrigation.

In a press conference held after the meeting of the mixed commission for the reconstruction of La Palma, he commented that the “exceptionality” of the case on the island “justifies” that this measure can be exempted from the general rule.

Planas has assumed that “it will take a job” and the “contacts” of his team and also with European parliamentarians have already begun and he understands that by 2022 “we must give peace of mind and guarantees” to farmers and ranchers affected by the eruption.

Along these lines, he pointed out that the European Commission “should be sensitive” although “it will not be easy” because the legal basis must be modified and that may take time but he hopes that a simpler procedure can be articulated. “My will is that the issue be approved,” he said.
