The 6th EPP European Congress of Young Farmers took place today with a special focus on the role young farmers can play in the new CAP and the Farm to Fork Strategy in a post-Covid world.
This Congress is organised by the EPP Group together with the Portuguese Farmers Confederation and the Spanish Agrarian Association-Young Farmers.
“As already one third of the ten million European farmers are over the age of 65, Europe’s new agricultural policy must provide incentives and economic security to attract young farmers”, stated EPP Group MEPs Nuno Melo, Herbert Dorfmann, Asim Ademov and Juan Ignacio Zoido, organisers of the EPP Group’s European Congress of Young Farmers.
