Royal Decree 948/2021, of November 2, establishing the regulatory bases for the granting of State aid for the implementation of investment projects within the Plan to boost the sustainability and competitiveness of agriculture and livestock farming (III) within the framework of the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan.
The mobilization of such a significant volume of resources opens up an extraordinary opportunity for our economy in general, and for the agriculture and livestock sector in particular, which will not only enable us to overcome the crisis and recover employment, but will also facilitate the modernization of the primary sector, so that this recovery will be green, digital, inclusive and social.
It will also improve the sustainability, competitiveness and resilience of the agri-food and fisheries sectors from an economic, environmental and social point of view. To achieve this objective, investments and reforms under this component focus on the following elements:
A set of norms were approved in the second vote, such as the role of regional, provincial and district governments in the promotion, support, follow-up, monitoring and supervision of agricultural markets; the extension of the term of the Compensation Program for Competitiveness (Agroideas); the strengthening of the role of women in rural communities (30% in the directive); the exoneration of taxes on the exportation of piled rice.

That, the Twenty-third State Policy, called Agricultural and Rural Development Policy, seeks to promote the agricultural and rural development of the country, including agriculture, livestock, aquaculture, agro-industry and sustainable forestry, in order to promote the economic and social development of the sector;
That, through Law No. 30355, Law for the Promotion and Development of Family Farming, the responsibilities of the State in the promotion and development of family farming are established, based on its recognition, as well as the importance of its role in food security, in the conservation of agrobiodiversity, in the sustainable use of natural resources, in the dynamization of local economies, and in the contribution to rural employment and the strength of communities, through the implementation of State policies;
That, by Supreme Decree No. 009-2015-MINAGRI, the National Strategy for Family Farming 2015 – 2021 was approved, which aims to guide and organize the comprehensive intervention of the State in favor of achieving favorable results for family farmers, based on the sustainable use of natural resources and in the framework of the processes of development and social inclusion for the benefit of the rural population;
On the other hand, the agricultural sector is vulnerable due to its own characteristics, since it is a highly atomized, stationary sector with a high rigidity of demand, due to the perishable nature of the production, and has gradually tended towards a structural imbalance of the market, reaching unprecedented levels at present, with the consequent loss of productive fabric and employment in the countryside.
As a consequence of all the above, the Government approved Royal Decree-Law 5/2020, of February 25, adopting certain urgent measures in the field of agriculture and food, which, after its validation by the Congress of Deputies, has been processed as a Bill.
For this reason, this Law incorporates a systematic set of concrete measures with tangible effects, which reduce the harmful factors and guarantee the standard of living, aimed at improving the negotiating position, the fairness of relations and the fair distribution of the general costs of the primary sector.
