Potato approval within days

Within days expected approval of the Ministry of Finance for the payment of aid for spring and autumn potatoes, due to the consequences of the pandemic, said Minister of Rural Development Mr. Spilios Livanos.

“As far as potatoes are concerned, my predecessor in the leadership of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development had already granted €12,442.926 million in aid for spring potatoes, of which €45,386.50 was received by the producers of Serres Prefecture.” As Mr. Livanos explained, “because the pandemic continues, true to our intention not to leave any Greek producer unprotected against its consequences, we sent a request to the European Commission for aid for spring and autumn potatoes, which was approved. We are now awaiting approval from the Ministry of Finance, with which we are in constant cooperation, in order to complete the procedures for granting the aid. I am optimistic that in the next few days we will be in a position to announce concrete figures in this respect.
