The public conference

For more than 20 years, the AREFLH (Assembly of European Horticultural Regions) has been actively defending the economic and social interests of the regions and producers to the European institutions. Each year the General Assembly and its public conference take place in a member region. This year the event was hosted by the region of Catalonia in partnership with Afrucat, an association of Catalan producers also a member of AREFLH.

The conference was organised around two themes. Firstly, the recent entry into force of the new CAP. As the new CAP involves high stakes for the development of a more resilient and greener agricultural world, it raises many questions. AREFLH opened the dialogue and welcomed Luc Berlottier from the of the DG AGRI of the European Commission, as well as Elena Garcia Garrido of the EU CAP Network. AREFLH representatives then exchanged views in a round table on the subject.

The second part of the conference was dedicated to the European draft regulation limiting packaging waste included in the Green Pact for Europe. Indeed, the sector is concerned about the possible consequences on the quality and safety of products. Irene Tolleret an MEP connected herself by visio conference to inform better participants on this sensitive issue. The final round table was an opportunity to discuss the topic and its issues in greater depth.
