The professional agricultural organization Asaja Murcia has asked the Government of Spain and the European Union to work in the reopening of the Russian market to Spanish fruits and vegetables.
For the general secretary of Asaja Murcia, Alfonso Gálvez Caravaca, "it is essential for access to the Russian market to be regained, since it is a large buyer of citrus fruits and vegetables. We find this nonsense veto very unfair, and it has caused a lot of damage to producers and companies."
The representative of Asaja Murcia said that "after the veto, some Latin American countries, such as Argentina, Mexico, Chile or Peru, have gained a foothold in the Russian market, and our country has lost the commercial dominance it held in the past. We must work hard to recover it, because it was a very interesting market with good prices for our fruits and vegetables."
Gálvez Caravaca has also pointed out that "it is a top priority that the Government of Pedro Sánchez and the European Union itself make use of all their diplomatic resources, as this veto is seriously damaging our sector as a whole."
