The Commission increases the budget for promoting EU agricultural products
EU News 361/2016
Brussels, 10 November 2016
The Commission adopted the 2017 promotion strategy for EU agricultural products with a total budget of €133 million compared to the €111 million available for 2016. This amount will co-finance several programmes, most of which will target third countries and regions, including China, Middle East, North America, South-East Asia and Japan. This orientation supports the momentum launched earlier this year by Commissioner Hogan's diplomatic offensive to find new markets and support consumption of EU products abroad.
