Organised civil society to have a strong say in food security policy at European and global level

The President of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) has called on agriculture ministers from Europe and elsewhere in the world to involve civil society players in discussions on trade and global food security. During the International Agriculture Ministers’ Panel discussions in Berlin last Saturday, President Nilsson stressed the need to involve farmers, consumers, and other civil society stakeholders in discussions geared to finding sustainable solutions to food security.

At the International Agriculture Ministers’ Panel Discussions held during the Global Forum for Food and Agriculture in Berlin (20-22 January 2011), EESC President Nilsson urged ministers to work to successfully complete the Doha Development Round under the WTO, to improve market access for developing countries, and to step up production capacities.

“The typical farmer in the world is a woman” concluded President Nilsson, addressing a top-ranking ministerial panel comprising, inter alia, Pascal Lamy, Director of the World Trade Organization, Ilse Aigner, German Federal Minister for Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection Dacian Cioloş, European Commissioner for Agriculture, and Bruno Le Maire, French Minister for Food, Agriculture and Fisheries.

Food secu rity is one of the main planks of the EESC President’s programme. The EESC will be actively involved in European and global debates on food secu rity in 2011, and will work closely on this issue with the French Presidency of G8/G20.

În zona Valea Timocului, Serbia, sunt situaţi aproape 250.000 de Români, fără şcoli în limba maternă, fără medii în limba Română. S-au pastrat obiceiurile de la strabunici.

Este importantă construirea acestei biserici pentru pastrarea identitatii de romani.

Avem nevoie de ajutor financiar pentru înfiinţarea unei biserici Romaneşti în Bor Serbia,dimensiuni 24x16m ,stil vechi romanesc.
