The COVID-19 crisis has turned out to be a wake-up call for Europe in many ways. Among other things, it has raised our awareness for the importance of food security and the relevance of the European agriculture as a systemically important infrastructure. Our farmers and all actors along the food supply chain worked hard to ensure that safe and high quality food continued to be available throughout the pandemic.

Against this background, we would like to invite you to the virtual ministerial meeting "Regional food production – a backbone for vital rural areas", which will be hosted jointly by Austria, Germany and the Croatian Council Presidency on Tuesday, 23 June 2020.
