4th of December 13.00 to 15.00 hr
Guests are Mrs. Iris Bouwers beleidsadviseur internationale zaken LTO Nederland and Mr. Peter Meedendorp stagiair internationale zaken LTO Nederland
LTO is the Dutch Farmers Association. It supports an active lobby at the European union headquarters in Brussels. The lobby defends the interests of the Dutch farmers in cooperation with the other farmers associations in other countries. A small group is permanently stationed in Brussels and they are supported by specialists that operate from the Netherlands on topics as legislation to protect the environment, animal health and many more.
Their main function is to influence the process from the beginning to the end of developing rules and legislation, political choices for farmer support and protect budgets. An enormous task and of vital importance for the Dutch farmers. The challenge is not only to defend your own interests but also to find allies and friends for support and come to the inevitable compromises between e.g. nature and agriculture.
