The president of the CIA Sicily Graziano Scardino sent a letter to the regional councilor for Agriculture Toni Scilla, asking for a meeting with the new CIA Regional Executive Committee, in order to make known the territorial and entrepreneurial realities that make up the new CIA management team Sicily and plan future work.

Content of the letter, the question of the European Commission, which returned the PSN (National Strategic Plan) to the Ministry of Agriculture with over 240 findings; for this reason comes the request of the leaders of the CIA Sicily for a CAP (Common Agricultural Policy) that is more adherent to the legitimate demands of the South and to a new RDP (Rural Development Program) that is tailored to the island’s agriculture.

“The requests for clarification sent by the European Commission to Italy on the National Strategic Plan – underlines Scardino – are clear proof of the inadequacy of the Plan and confirm what was reported last year by the CIA Sicily.
The plan, in its current form, is not enough.
A regional table is urgently needed in order to analyze the critical issues and formulate proposals for the national consultation tables.
For these reasons – concludes Scardino – we asked councilor Scilla for a meeting in order to start a discussion that leads to formulating proposals that contain an equitable distribution of the PAC prizes and limit the distortions deriving from historical prizes “.
