Vice Regional Governor
Greetings from Regional Governor G. Patouli
The agri-food sector offers sustainable and significant prospects of growth and constitutes a key pillar of the regional economy to which we attach particular importance, as it contributes to employment growth, investment, regional development and income generation.
The priority of the Region of Attica in the agri-food sector is to support agricultural income, which will lead to smart and inclusive growth and improve the negotiating and competitive position of Attica’s farmers. In this context, we emphasize the modernisation and vertical integration of the production process, the introduction of innovative practices and the application of new technologies along the agri-food chain, the support for processing and the implementation of an appropriate marketing mix in order to increase the added value of agricultural products.
The pandemic has created a new framework in the field of production as well. For this reason, we shall do everything within our power to support the efforts made by producers to promote their products.
The Region of Attica, with its presence in The DeliFair by EXPOTROF, ensures and finances 80% of its producers’ participation in an online Food and Beverage Exhibition for the second consecutive time over the pandemic period. 15 exhibitors from Attica participate in the digital organisation of the EXPOTROF Exhibition, aiming to achieve collaborations and partnerships as well as strengthening the competitiveness of the Greek Food and Beverage Market and export activity.
The coordination of the relevant initiatives has been undertaken by Mr S. Voidonikolas, the competent Regional Councilor for Agricultural Policy and Fisheries of the Region of Attica.
I wish you every success in the event.
