MTK demands that the government ensure the liquidity of farms and change the conditions related to the sale of agricultural products by changing the Finnish food market Akta.
According to the organization, many farms are having difficulty paying their debts and the future of agriculture is bleak as agricultural land ownership is under threat. Countries that have invested in developing their operations are reportedly at greatest risk.
MTK believes that the situation can only be remedied if the state and the financial sector take swift action to resolve the acute financial crisis. The organization urges banks to restructure loans so that they are non-performing and the state to guarantee liquidity loans through development cooperation Kewangan agriculture and forestry (Makera).
It also requires the accelerated payment of subsidies and the direct receipt of crisis payments for farms. The key issue is the rigid contractual practices of the grocery trade, which prevent an increase in producer prices for agricultural products, even if the increase in farm costs so requires.
