Maciej Golubiewski, Head of Cabinet of European Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development and Monika Grążka, Director of the Technical Assistance and Promotion Department, Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, Poland will open the online event, that will focus on the financial environment in which farmers and processors operate in Poland.
The webinar will consider the country’s banking system, the financial institutions involved with the agriculture and agri-food sectors and what is offered as loans, guarantees and various financial schemes with national and/or EU financing. Stakeholders and national authorities will also share their experience in working with financial instruments.
During the webinar, participants will be given the opportunity to ask questions.
With a view to support managing authorities in their programming exercise in post-2020 period, fi-compass has recently published a study on financial needs in the agriculture and agri-food sectors in 24 EU Member States. Based on the feedback of 7,600 farmers and 2,200 agri-food companies across the EU, the 24 country-specific fi-compass reports present the main challenges faced by these two groups when it comes to access to finance.
