The PRDE bet for agriculture

Monday, October 31st, 2011

The blindness and selfishness of the politicians with the interests of the party are from reaching the necessary water infrastructure and the rich production areas of our region and other parts of Spain.

Responsible citizens we must not allow suicide dismantling agricultural sector, source of wealth, foreign exchange earnings and job creation.

An agriculture profitable, competitive, unsubsidized is possible if the selfish political interests give way to common sense.

Firmly and decidedly bet on new technologies, research on new varieties, improved infrastructure and water supply quality at affordable prices to those areas that are better able to create jobs and help Spain out as soon as possible this crisis.

We need politicians with enough preparation and generosity, capable of reaching large state pact on basic and fundamental as it is good planning and management of water resources.

From PRDE bet for improving infrastructure and quality water supply at affordable prices to those areas that are better able to create jobs through agriculture.

We stand unequivocally for the transfers and the interconnection between basins to eliminate the structural problem of water in our country.
