Priority question for written answer  P-002213/2021
to the Commission
Rule 138
Bronis Ropė (Verts/ALE)
 Subject: Recovery and Resilience Plan

The Farm to Fork Strategy is at the heart of the Green Deal(1). The Commission Staff Working Document – Guidance for Member States on Recovery and Resilience Plans – also provides a recommendation on investing in sustainable food production (‘Investments in sustainable food production and consumption in line with objectives set out in the Farm to Fork Strategy’)(2).

Agriculture is a unique sector, as increasing production through sustainable methods not only helps us to adapt to climate change, but also helps to mitigates it. Lithuanian agriculture, which has the lowest productivity per hectare in the EU, has the greatest potential in this respect. However, in Lithuania, the Recovery and Resilience Plan does not provide for funds for agriculture. This happened due to the fact that the plan had been prepared in secret, as the Lithuanian Minister for Finance ‘G. Skaistė said that the EUR 2 billion recovery plan had been requested by the European Commission’(3).

In light of the foregoing:

1. Does the Commission agree with this secrecy surrounding the Recovery and Resilience Plan?

2. Does the Commission agree that, under the Recovery and Resilience Plan, a Member State must provide agriculture with a share of funding that would be sufficient to meeting the challenges of the Farm to Fork Strategy?
