Spain and France want a solution to the US tariff conflict.

Both nations, through a videoconference, showed their concern about the tariffs imposed by the United States on certain agri-food products

The Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, Luis Planas, held a bilateral meeting, by videoconference, with the new Minister of Agriculture and Food of France, Julien Denormandie, with whom he addressed the concern of both countries about the tariffs imposed by the United States on certain European agri-food products.

Specifically, the meeting also analyzed different aspects related to the negotiations of the future Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) and international agri-food trade. In addition, topics related to the community strategies ‘From farm to table’ and ‘Biodiversity’ were discussed.

In this way, the great convergence of points of view between both countries on the main aspects of the future CAP has been verified, in particular those referred to guaranteeing food security in the European Union (EU) and promoting competitive and sustainable agricultural holdings .

Planas stressed that the work for the approval of the future CAP is well advanced, so it will be possible to reach a general agreement next October, as the German presidency has indicated.

In this first contact between the two departments, the intention to continue with the “good and positive” relationship between the two countries has been expressed.
