BELGIUM: EU to help smaller wine nations

By | 12 December 2006

The European Commission is to spend around EUR4m (US$5.3m) helping Cypriot, Greek and Portuguese wine producers export to key markets outside the EU.

Brussels is funding 50% of planned programmes to markets including the US, Canada, and Japan. The rest of the funding will come from national governments or private sources.

The Association of Cypriot Wine Producers will get EUR1.4m of the EU money over three years. Greece's National Professional Association of Vineyards and Wine (EDOAO) will receive EUR1.75m over two years.

Meanwhile, Portugal's CVRVV wine organisation - the Comissão de Viticultura da Região dos Vinhos Verdes - stands to receive EUR1m over three years.
