Measures and impacts related to the Covid-19 crisis

There is an arm wrestling match between the European Commission and the Agriculture Committee of the European Parliament on delegated acts for exceptional market measures for the wine sector. MEPs objected to one of the acts in order to obtain more ambitious support, notably for the wine and fruit and vegetable sectors. The Commission announced that it would propose a new act “before the summer” and before Parliament takes a final position of rejection (or not) at its July plenary session.

AREV asks the European Commission for an extraordinary budget for the urgent revival of the wine market by Covid-19

The President of the Assembly of European Wine Regions (AREV), Emiliano García-Page, addressed a letter to President Ursula von der Leyen, asking for her support in view of the current crisis in the sector caused by COVID19.
In addition to a recovery plan, AREV suggested the creation of a high-level group responsible for proposing measures to help revive the European wine sector affected by the pandemic.
