  • [01] AGRICULTURE MINISTER - INTERVIEW

    The aim of the Ministry of Agriculture, Natural Resources and the Environment is to promote sustainable agricultural development in Cyprus to the benefit of farmers, the economy and society as a whole, Minister of Agriculture Michalis Polynikis has told CNA in an interview.

    He added that one of the Ministry`s top priorities is tackling the consequences of the long drought and solving the water supply problem, as well as managing the protected Akamas peninsula and promoting the Agricultural Development Programme for the years 2007-2013.

    Polynikis pointed out that farmers bear the brunt of the drought and have not been able to plant new crops, something which puts at risk their survival. He noted that subsequently the stockbreeders are facing difficulties due to the lack of animal feed, which they are obliged to import now at a higher cost.

    He said the Ministry of Agriculture was looking into the possibility of receiving EU grants to support the farmers and stockbreeders through various European funds.
