During the Green Week exhibition in Berlin, a group of IFAJ executive committee members were invited to the stand of the European Commission’s Directorate General for Agriculture and Rural Development (DG Agri) to discuss the communication of the current reform of the Common Agricultural Policy of the EU and to meet the recently appointed head of communication of Dg Agri, Angela Filote. The Commissioner and officials of DG Agri are keen to explain – to farmers and to taxpayers – the thinking that underpins the reform. They see a key role for journalists in that process.
