The conference will be opened with video statements from the European Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development, Mr Janusz Wojciechowski and the Vice-President of the European Investment Bank, Mr Christian Kettel Thomsen.
This year’s conference will have a particular focus on the findings of the fi-compass study on the financing needs in the agriculture and the agri-food sectors in the EU Member States. The 24 country reports and their results will be shared with the fi-compass community allowing experts and practitioners to exchange on the findings, also in the perspective of a timely inclusion of financial instruments in the 2021-2027 CAP Strategic Plans.
Focus will also be put on the Green Deal and how the EAFRD financial instruments can support green and environmentally sustainable investments in the agriculture sector.
