The European Commission has approved 41 new programmes to promote agricultural products in the EU and on third country markets, worth 130 million EURO over 3 years, half of which (65m EURO) comes from the EU budget. This includes an extra 30m€ of EU funds made available by the Commission following the Russian ban on imports of EU food products last August.
Third countries and regions targeted are: Middle East, North America, South-East Asia, China, Japan, South Korea, Africa, Russia, Belarus, Kazakshtan, Australia and Norway. Moreover, five of the accepted programmes are so-called multi-programmes, comprising joint promotion campaigns by organisations from different Member States.
