Agriculture Development and Food Minister Evangelos Apostolou, in an interview with the Athens-Macedonian News Agency on Tuesday, outlined the ministry's policy for boosting growth in the agricultural sector.


He stressed that "the cooperative and collective organisation of farmers in general is the only way to strengthen the production base," while talking about the developmental effort underway and its financing.

At the same time, Apostolou focused on the importance of the LEADER programme and of keeping the local population in the countryside through the 380-million-euro programme.

During this period, he noted, the government had signed ministerial decisions to create a framework that will give a great impetus to growth in the farm sector and more generally in the Greek countryside.

At the same time, he noted the resources provided to support this developmental effort.

"It is a strategic choice that we consistently serve to capitalise on the great potential of rural areas," he said. From the beginning of 2018, Apostolou explained, approximately 700 million euros will be made available to farmers, groups of farmers and local communities to finance a major developmental effort with three axes: modernisation and innovation, collective organization and overall rural support.
