ICSA president Patrick Kent has welcomed the visit of Chinese Premier Li Keqiang and Agriculture Minister Han Changfu to Ireland.
“This visit is a welcome acknowledgement of the developing relationship between Ireland and China. The more markets we can open for Irish agricultural produce, the better for everyone,” said Mr. Kent.
“However, the bottom line is that these new markets must translate into better prices for farmers and not just lead to greater profits for processors and multinational supermarkets,” he warned.
