In this way, Europe shields the financial record of the Posei endowed with 268.4 million euros until 2027 and avoids the 3.9% cut in the game that would have meant a loss of 50 million euros for the Canarian countryside.
The agreement reached in May and ratified today establishes that the POSEI financial sheet will be paid in full with European funds from the Common Agricultural Policy, thus maintaining the current status of the aid.
The Minister of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries of the regional Executive, Alicia Vanoostende, has shown her satisfaction after knowing the ratification of the agreement because there have been “intense months of negotiations in a complicated framework due to the complex situation Europe is experiencing due to the pandemic, as well as for Brexit ”he explained.
The regional minister has once again recognized the joint work that has been carried out so that the negotiations resulted in this excellent news for the primary sector of the Archipelago. Vanoostende wanted to thank the Minister of Agriculture Luis Planas for his strong commitment to the Canary Islands in the fight to maintain POSEI funds.
“Thanks to the joint work between the Outermost Regions, the regional governments, the Government of Spain, the Canarian MEPs and the agricultural associations, Europe has understood the singularities and specific conditions of the Canary Islands, shielding funds that are vital for the development of the activity agriculture of the Islands. Today the Canarian countryside breathes a little calmer. ” The counselor has pointed out.
