Portugal gears up for the farming of the future. Portugal’s agricultural policy for the future was outlined in Lisbon on Wednesday October 14 2020 by the Minister for Agriculture, Maria do Céu Antunes.
In her address to business leaders, she reminded those present that while people spoke of tourism and real estate as being the main drivers of the Portuguese economy, it was in fact agriculture that was also responsible for much of Portugal’s economic export growth in recent years in a sector that was continuing to be strong and successful.
The minister used the opportunity to outline an ambitious programme for agriculture for the next ten years, Terra Futura 2030, which aims to digitalise, modernise and innovate Portugal’s agricultural sector.
