EESC WELCOMES CONTINUATION OF THE FOOD AID SCHEME

20 Dec 2011
Ref: 125 2011

The European Economic and Social Committee welcomes the political agreement reached on 15 December within the Council of Agriculture and Fisheries that guarantees the continuation of the food aid programme in 2012 and 2013. However,  it deeply deplores the uncertainty about the scheme's continuation after 2013 and encourages the Commission to use its right of initiative to draw up a new proposal. The EESC backs the "aid for the needy" scheme to continue from 2014 onwards.
