Fruit and vegetable growers are gathering in Plovdiv today for a national meeting. The event is organised by the Fruit and Vegetable Chamber and the National Association of Potato Growers. 

They will be discussing a "Long-term strategy for the revival of traditional Bulgarian production". The meeting will be attended by the Minister of Agriculture Yavor Gechev and experts from the ministry, who will introduce the producers to the new measures under the Strategic Plan, while the industry representatives will present the real problems and challenges for the producers. The focus will be on organic production.

Again today, other fruit and vegetable producers from 8 organizations declared they would organize a protest to demand changes in the strategic plan after the government has been refusing to hold a dialogue with them for months. In its present form, the plan does not benefit farmers but will cater to lobbying interests. The protest is to take place in Ruse.
