I would advise the new Minister of Agriculture to look for a few professionals, because there is not one person with agricultural education in the management of the Ministry – said former Prime Minister Waldemar Pawlak in “Kropka nad i”. Referring to the issue of Ukrainian grain, he also said that in his opinion “there is a lot of room for maneuver, but you have to be able to manage this situation”.

Former prime minister, currently chairman of the Supreme Council PSL Waldemar Pawlak was asked in “Kropka nad i” on TVN24 what he would advise the newly appointed Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Robert Telus, to do with the overdue Ukrainian grain.

– First, I would advise him to look for a few professionals, because there is not one person in the management of the ministry with agricultural education and perhaps for this reason they cannot cope with all this – he said.

– However, when it comes to grain, there are several ways – assessed the TVN24 guest. According to him, even in the agreement signed by the Deputy Prime Minister, the former head of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, Henryk Kowalczyk, with the protesting farmers, “there were very interesting proposals”. – One concerning the transfer of grain through Poland with the use of a deposit – he pointed out. Pawlak explained that it was a situation when “there is a deposit (paid) at the border and when the grain arrives at the port, the deposit is returned.”

– Secondly, it is possible – and this is also in this agreement, because it is an agreement of the minister with farmers, but also with processors and exporters – to convert a large part of, for example, corn and rapeseed into biofuels. This will be beneficial for the Polish economy, for the Ukrainian economy, argued Pawlak.

He added that perhaps “the (Government – ed.) Agency of Strategic Reserves should buy grain for strategic reserves.” – There is a lot of room for maneuver, but you have to be able to manage this situation – he added.
