In view of the imminent approval of the Common Market Organization of Wine, ASAJA has requested aid per hectare from Brussels
The Spanish Association of Young Farmers ( ASAJA) in Castilla-La Mancha will be holding its regional conference within the frame of FENAVIN-2007. During the conference the most controversial points of the reform of the Common Market Organization of Wine will be made known, the same to be approved by the European Commission on the upcoming July 4th, and at which numerous representatives in the organization from all Manchego provinces will be coming together.
The final document that Brussels is to approve in the upcoming month of July contemplates "its start-up, a budget that is still to be established and likewise the future of distillation. A series of transfers and aids will also be approved", this according to that mentioned by Pedro Narro, Head of Technical Services for ASAJA in Brussels.
"Apart from this we are also requesting aid per hectare", affirmed Narro, who underlined that the tendency in Europe is leading towards "more freedom for each member state and even for the regions of the member states". Something that is known as the principle of subsidiarity, which grants each state more prominence in the application of the main principles that the European Commission dictates.
The Provincial Secretary in Ciudad Real, Florencio Rodríguez has commented that "we must remember that currently Ciudad Real is the province in Spain with the greatest vineyard surface and wine production. Our region's vineyard represents a very important, a vital economic activity for our municipalities and people".
"Despite the fact that the reform of the CMO will finally take place in the second half of the year, pertinent work aimed at conserving the future of this Common Market Organization is underway right now. Thus the reason why ASAJA has decided to present an advance on the definitive future of this reform within the frame of the National Trade Fair on Wine, and on top of that in our own province", the Provincial Secretary explained.
