Minister of Agriculture and Forestry Kimmo Tiilikainen (Centre) is concerned over the agony of Finnish agriculture. He says these are the worst times for Finnish agriculture during Finland’s EU membership. Next week, the Finnish government decides on a crisis package for agriculture, but the Minister does not want to evaluate sums yet. In addition to domestic issues, Finnish agriculture suffers from global overproduction, the imbalance of EU markets, as well as sanctions between the EU and Russia.
