The PP registers in the Madrid Assembly an initiative to reduce taxes and bureaucracy in agriculture

The spokesperson for the Popular Party Group in the Chamber, Carlos Díaz-Pache, has declared that this non-law proposal (PNL) aims “defend farmers and the countryside, and that the Government can lower taxes on their products to make them more competitive”.

During these last weeks marked by demonstrations in the agricultural sector throughout Spain and Europe, one of the most repeated demands has been precisely that of the elimination of bureaucratic obstacles. The PP, which has an absolute majority in the Madrid Chamber of Assembly, will urge the central government to “strengthen the image of Spain in the markets, especially highlighting the quality and safety of its food products, as well as the value of its gastronomy”.

The 'popular' maintain that “We must reduce the bureaucracy to which farmers are subjected and even that they can be compensated for the products they have lost in the attacks they have received in France.” Also have asked to reach a National Water Pactmaking investments in infrastructure”, and demand “the review of the Food Chain Law and the agricultural insurance plan, as well as the reform of the agri-food PERTE and the creation of a group of experts.” “In fiscal matters, the GPP seeks avoid excessive tax burdens that hinder the competitiveness of the agri-food sector, reducing VAT on essential products (…) and suspending the so-called plastic tax”, they added.
