Finland’s Prime Minister Juha Sipilä writes in Maaseudun Tulevaisuus about Finnish farmers’ plight. The situation is severe, for example, due to the removal of milk quotas in the EU, weak economic situation and the counter sanctions from Russia. The farmers’ message at the tractor demonstration was clear, PM Sipilä writes, and says that they will react to the situation and do everything they can to facilitate the situation. The European Union’s agriculture ministers met early this week, and solutions were expected to the difficult market situation. Some important issues for Finland progressed there, PM Sipilä says. A positive issue is that the reduction of agriculture bureaucracy was emphasised at the meeting. In this, the EU still has a lot of work to do.
