Fa Executive Council To Discuss Fiscal Compact Referendum

IFA President John Bryan said he would be presenting the details of the
referendum on the Fiscal Compact to a special meeting of the IFA Executive
Council next Tuesday, April 3rd.

John Bryan said the members of the Executive Council would hold a full
discussion, and would then issue a recommendation to the almost 90,000
members of the Association.

He said farm families have always shown strong support for the European
Union and the Common Agricultural Policy, which has been very important in
underpinning agricultural production and the rural economy in this country.

The IFA President said, “As a small open economy, Ireland benefits from
membership of a stable currency regime. This prevents currency fluctuations
and price uncertainty, improving access both to the Eurozone and other
markets. This is of particular importance for our export-dependent sectors,
such as agri-food, and is a key factor in attracting Foreign Direct
Investment to Ireland.
