The greatest challenge

For Fepex, the main obstacle for the flower and ornamental plant sector is its exclusion from the National Strategic Plan that the MAPA presented to the European Commission.

In 2022, the development of the PAC legislation will be concluded and Fepex considers it essential for the Spanish national model to include the flower and plant sector in the sectorial interventions from 2023 onwards.

José María Zalbidea, General Secretary of Fepex, considers this to be the greatest challenge in order to be able to improve the sector’s competitiveness. And the fact is that it would allow the producers and marketers to reach a greater sectorial organisation through producer organisations (PO) and undertake improvements on the farms through the programmes and operational funds. Initially, the Ministry of Agriculture has backed this inclusion that has also counted with the express support of the Autonomous Communities of Catalonia, Valencia, Murcia, Andalusia and the Canary Islands, which represent most of the production.
