Agricultural Strategy Paper (2006-2010) and Agriculture Law
The Agriculture Strategy Paper (2006-2010) has set the main aims of agriculture as to constitute an agriculture sector sustainable, highly competitive and organised by taking into account economic, social, environmental and international development dimensions within the principle of the utilization of the resources effectively. In this framework, the agricultural support measures have been re-identified.
The Agriculture Law was adopted in 2006 which determines and regulates the policies for agriculture and rural development in line with the development plans and strategies. The Agriculture Law also defines the aims, scope and subjects of the agricultural policies, the instruments of agriculture and rural development support, the financing and administrative structure and the legal and administrative arrangements for the main research and development programmes to be implemented in the agriculture sector.
