The government’s new agricultural policy, which is harmonized with the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), will be outlined by Prime Minister George Papandreou at the port city of Rethymno, on the southern Aegean island of Crete, on Sunday.

Providing support to locally produced goods across the country and their promotion in the market, in accordance with the EU standards, will be the key point of the new policy.

The premier, who will present the so-called “basket of agricultural commodities”, will be accompanied by Agricultural Development and Foods Minister Costas Skandalidis and deputy minister Milena Apostolaki.

Before his departure from Rethymno on Sunday afternoon, the prime minister will meet with representatives of local agricultural cooperatives and businessmen active in the local products market.
