Romanian agriculture food products to be delivered to Arab countries
Romania has signed an agreement for the delivery of agri-food products to Arab countries that provides for the setup of a collection centre in Constanta and another one in Doha or Abu Dhabi, State Secretary with Romania's Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MADR) Daniel Botanoiu told in a report to Agerpress.  

'We are currently trying to open external markets. We have signed an agreement for the delivery of agri-food products to Arab countries that have demanded vegetables, cereals and animals. 
The agreement provides for the establishment of a collection centre in Constanta and another one in Doha or Abu Dhabi, but we must get supply continuity.  At the same time, we have to secure homogenous quantity and quality of deliveries” said Botanoiu.In his opinion, the fruit and vegetable sector needs sustained funding because it was not properly supported upon Romania's accession to the European Union.'The fruit and vegetable sector has not been properly supported since Romania's accession to the European Union. 
Consequently, the sector needs sustained funding. We have to turn our face to producers instead of those who take from one place and trade in another. The producers in their turn have to teach consumers to seek them instead of seeking intermediaries,' said Botanoiu.In another line of thought, he announced having discussed with the Finance Ministry for members of farming cooperatives to no longer be taxed individually and for the rates and taxes to be paid by the organisations.'As far as cooperatives are concerned, I discussed with officials of the Finance Ministry to no longer tax cooperative members individually and the dues to be paid exclusively by cooperatives,' said the MADR official.
