· Carmona highlights the Strategic Competitiveness Plan, the Andalusian Water Pact and the commitment to administrative simplification

· Defends the wisdom of uniting the agricultural sector and the environment in a council: "They are two allied realities that could not continue turning their backs on each other"

The spokesman for the Andalusian PP in the Commission for Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Sustainable Development, José Ramón Carmona, affirmed today that "the Andalusian countryside and rural areas have done very well with the change of government, because in the first days They have known important plans and actions for the agricultural sector that prioritize employment and competitiveness”. He pointed out that both the Chairman of the Board, Juanma Moreno, and the counselor Carmen Crespo "have a personal commitment to this sector and have already begun to comply."

In this sense, Carmona referred to the decision announced by Juanma Moreno to launch a Strategic Competitiveness Plan for Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Rural Development with "objectives shared by the sector" such as improving competitiveness , the promotion of research and technological innovation, the promotion of training and support for generational change.

He also pointed out the success of promoting an Andalusian Water Pact as a "dialogue response to a real problem of Agriculture in Andalusia".

He stressed the importance for the sector of betting on the simplification of bureaucratic procedures and deregulation to gain effectiveness and efficiency. "The slowness in the responses, the duplicate and unnecessary procedures have to end, because they have been a drag on the economic development of the sector."

Carmona referred to the budgets in this matter of the previous socialist governments as "a real problem and a stopper for the development of the sector." He affirmed that "budget after budget was left unexecuted by millions of euros and, sometimes due to lack of planning and other times due to poor management, opportunities have been lost and the expectations of Andalusians linked to agriculture, livestock and fishing have been disappointed .

Thus, he pointed out that despite the fact that the Andalusian fishing sector is the second most important in Spain, after Galicia, and despite the significant problems it is going through, the previous government did not allocate a single euro of its own budget to the Junta de Andalucía and only European aid came to the sector.


The popular deputy defended as a great success the union in the same council of the competences of agriculture, livestock and fishing with those of sustainable development and environment. "They are two united and allied realities that could not continue turning their backs on each other."

He assured that "much remains to be done to create wealth in natural environments hand in hand with the resident population." He advocated "sustainable conservation" and congratulated the Ministry's commitment to the circular economy as an "opportunity to make the preservation of our natural heritage a source of employment and activity."
