French agriculture plans meet union resistance

The creation of a national institute for agricultural and veterinary research is among the measures proposed in a bill aimed at developing France's agriculture, food and forestry.

Stéphane Le Foll, France’s agriculture minister, presented the bill in the council of ministers on 13 November, and it will be examined by the national assembly from the beginning of January.

According to the government, “cooperation between technical education, higher education and research would be reinforced” by the institute. “Priority will be given to professional agricultural and forestry training, to teacher training and to the internationalisation of French research and agricultural and veterinary education.”
