ROAD TO RECOVERY 5G EVENT

On 25th February, Copa-Cogeca Secretary-General Pekka Pesonen took part in an event where panellists explored how 5G can drive more sustainable and productive agriculture. The debate took place as Member States finalise their Recovery and Resilience Fund spending plans, and the European Commission develops its Digital Decade targets and its long term vision for Rural Areas. For Copa-Cogeca an acceleration of the deployment of 5G is key in avoiding a rural-urban area divide, but also to avoid getting behind our competitors.

Policy

Agriculture is one of the most integrated sectors at European level and lies at the heart of many European institution initiatives. Copa and Cogeca organise themselves so as to respond to the challenges and questions posed by European decision-makers, allowing European farmers and cooperatives to put forward their views and proposals concerning a multitude of subjects that directly affect farmers no matter what agricultural activity they are involved in. In the following 12 categories, you will find our positions on key issues affecting the future of European agriculture.

Our Vision – We Farm 4 EU

The coming decade is pivotal for EU agriculture. Many challenges lie ahead. We will face difficult debates on generation renewal, low farm income, market volatility and climate change. As European farmers and cooperatives, we are aware of and ready to navigate these difficult issues and to weather the changes in store. We seek to deliver the type of agriculture that our citizens expect and demand: agriculture that provides a high level of food security and high standards of quality, welfare, sustainability and environmental protection. This is our commitment to Europe! In return, we look to Europe’s leaders to deliver the policy framework that will feed our future.
