Agrifood Podcast: Ukraine trade liberalisation, Chinese fisheries, save the bees
The one-year scheme to suspend import duty on all agricultural products from Ukraine is coming to an end. Now, the Commission is reconsidering the arrangement. EURACTIV Germany’s Julia Dahm spoke to EU agriculture Commissioner Janusz Wojciechowski about this and Gerardo Fortuna talks about his chat with agriculture Director General Wolfgang Burtscher. They also highlight an investigation on why the EU isn’t taking action in light of mounting evidence on China’s illegal fishing, as well as the successful European Citizen Initiative ‘Save bees and farmers’ with campaigning group Slow Food’s Madeleine Coste.
