Stabilisation of prices in rural areas and protection of Polish land

Prime Minister Beata Szydło reminded several facts refuting untrue accusations of the opposition towards Minister of Agriculture Krzysztof Jurgiel.

The first one is stabilisation of prices in rural areas. Today the purchase price of milk is approx. PLN 1.5 per litre, while previously it was PLN 0.9, said the Prime Minister. The same is true for the purchase price of meat and opening of around 30 external markets for new products manufactured by Polish farmers, added the Prime Minister. Another achievement of the Minister of Agriculture is the protection of Polish land against sale and many other actions improving the situation in Polish rural areas.

Prime Minister Beata Szydło also reminded that it was the government of the Civic Platform and the Polish Peasants’ Party that had increased the retirement age of all Poles, including farmers, to 67 years.
