French Ambassador hails great potential of Romanian agriculture at Indagra Fair

France’s ambassador to Romania Francois Saint-Paul stated on Wednesday at the opening of the French pavilion at the Indagra Fair that he trusts in Romania’s agriculture, which has “a great potential,” especially regarding organic crops.

The opening event of the French pavilion was attended by Romanian Agriculture Minister Daniel Constantin.

According to the ambassador, Indagra is a “big Romanian fair which has become a tradition.” At the current edition eight French companies are making their debut.

“Of course, this year the agriculture will not reach the 2013-2014 peaks, due to this summer’s drought. This situation shows us the need to modernize the country, especially in regards to irrigation systems. Thus, this French pavilion at Indagra is part of a initiative to promote French technology and equipment in Romania,’ the diplomat added, according to Agerpres.

“We trust in Romanian agriculture. We are convinced it has a great potential and we want to build a strong partnership between the French and the Romanian agriculture,’ the French Ambassador said. According to him, Romanian agriculture has a great potential, especially in the sector of biologic agriculture, “of controlled origin.”

In his turn, Daniel Constantin spoke about the Romanian-French partnership in the field of agriculture and said that the French Embassy is probably the most active entity in the bid for a rapprochement of the agriculture sectors in the two countries. He reminded the fact that in the past the French Embassy supported the creation of a White Paper of Romanian agriculture.

“The strategic partnership we have with France has developed greatly the economic side,’ Constantin said.
