“Stop imports, Green Deal out” is not a statement of Janusz Wojciechowski's position

European Commission

In a public statement, the EU Agriculture Commissioner Mr Janusz Wojciechowski said that “Stop imports, Green Deal out” is a summary of the demands that I (Mr Wojciechowski) have heard from farmers over the course of several meetings and interactions in recent weeks. It is not a statement of my position. Let me make my position clear. In relation to imports, I have made clear that farmers must be protected against the significant impacts of trade liberalisation with Ukraine and any unfair competition in our trade agreements. In relation to sustainability, I recognise the threat that many farmers have felt from some Green Deal initiatives, and I believe that the Commission is responding, for example, in President Von der Leyen's recent withdrawal of the SUR proposal.
