Due to environmental challenges and the emergence of Asian competitors, the Minister of Agriculture called for cooperation at EU level for beekeepers in Budapest.

At the event organized by the European Beekeeping Association, Nagy István explained that market conditions, climate change and the use of agrochemicals are increasingly disabling European honey producers. This is not only threatened the traditional way of producing honey, but also pollination and, with it, the production of two-thirds of food, as well as biodiversity and ecological balance, he added.
