BRUSSELS, August 22, /ITAR-TASS/. The European Commission (EC) will present a package of measures for examination by European Union (EU) experts on Friday for support to the growers of fruit and vegetables for stabilizing the situation on the European market in view of Russia's food embargo, Roger Waite, press secretary of Dacian Ciolos, EU Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development, told ITAR-TASS.
"The EC will present proposals about a package of temporary exclusive measures for support to the growers of fruit and vegetables," said Waite, announcing that next expert meeting is scheduled for August 28.
Waite said participants in the expert meeting, which will be attended by representatives of the European Parliament Committee for Agriculture along with the experts of EU and EC countries, would also exchange opinions about the situation on the food market of the EU as a whole.
On September 5, Italy, which currently presides over the EU, will convene a meeting of Agriculture ministers of the 28 member-countries of the EU in Brussels to discuss the situation connected with Russia's food embargo, and measures of support for European producers.
