Statement on 2030 process

As Ministers, we want to express our regret at the decision of the Environmental Pillar to withdraw from the Agri Food 2030 strategy discussions.  We sincerely hope the Pillar will reconsider that decision and engage in the process as we believe it has an important role to play in the development of this policy.


Agri Food 2030, under the chairmanship of Tom Arnold, will play a huge role in shaping the future direction of our sustainable agri-food sector.  That is why it is crucial to have all stakeholders involved.


We understand that the process is ongoing, and there is still time for further collaboration.  We would urge all sides to recognise that and do all they can to remain engaged.
