â€˘ It is a new battery of aids that reflect the commitment of the Popular Party with the development of the Lorca primary sector.
We are talking about an excellent opportunity for professionals in our field who should not let go.
The Councilor for Agriculture and Rural Development of the Municipal People's Group in the City of Lorca, Angel Mecca, has encouraged young Lorca farmers to benefit from the aid amounting to 9,750,000 euros that the PP puts in the hands of professionals in the sector primary from the Regional Government.
We are talking about aid to young farmers for the creation of agricultural companies during the period 2020-2023.
The objective is to promote the generational change in the agricultural sector, since only 11% of European farmers are under 40 years of age.
It also aims to promote the creation of employment in rural areas, social inclusion, as well as the balanced and sustainable economic development of these areas.
From the PP we support those who take this land forward and avoid with their daily work that can advance the desertification of our soils.
Ángel Meca stressed that support for young farmers is a priority for the PP.
If we want to have a competitive agri-food sector we have to support our people.
Every euro that is destined, our farmers multiply it, transforming it into employment, opportunities for development and promotion of the economy.
The reality is that we live here, and we are worried about our people, the thousands of families that make a living pulling from the hard earth the best and highest quality food that we put in the pantries of all Europe.
It is worth mentioning that the requirements for accessing these aids are relaxed, so that those farmers who have registered or modified the agricultural activity with a maximum of 24 months prior to the presentation of the aid may apply for it. in the previous call it was six.
The aid consists of a basic module of 22,500 euros, which can be increased up to a maximum of 70,000 euros depending on the characteristics of the operation and the necessary actions that each young person requires to achieve their objective.
The distribution is established in two payments, the last one will correspond with the correct execution of the business plan.
The agricultural sector is the cornerstone of our economy.
The importance of this aid lies in being able to fulfill the objective of facilitating the initial establishment of young farmers as holders of agricultural holdings and the adaptation of these, promoting the agricultural and livestock activity.
This aid is financed 63% by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (FEADER), by 11.10% by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food and by 25.90% by the Community.
This line of aid has already been published in the Official Bulletin of the Region of Murcia (BORM), and applications may be submitted until August 23 through the link: http://www.carm.es/web/pagina ? CONCURRENT = 3125 & IDTIPO = 240 & TRAIL = c672 $ m2469
