Fazio opens up to Farmindustria on the manoeuvre

 «We have a duty to give active ingredients to citizens at the lowest possible cost in this moment of economic difficulty. This objective», which is clear in the maneuver launched by the CDM, «can be achieved in various ways».

We are not ruling this out – he concluded – and therefore we can go and see».
