Expo Milan 2015 faces the problem of feeding the global population and the earth, and represents a valuable occasion for fostering dialogue between the main actors of the international community on the major challenges that humanity has to deal with.

The Milan Protocol, namely the policy document of EXPO 2015, aims at promoting sustainable eating habits in order to fight world hunger. It also aims at reducing the amount of food waste and at encouraging sustainable agriculture.

I fully share these goals. In particular, I consider that the promotion of sustainable agriculture, defined as the efficient production of agricultural products that are safe, healthy and of high quality, in accordance with procedures that are sustainable in environmental, economic and social terms, is a priority.

We owe a debt of gratitude to the natural resources of our planet, which are part of our lives and have to be protected and handed down to future generations. This is the main objective that we must pursue.

As Member of the Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development and Member of the Committee on Environment and Public Health and Food Safety of the European Parliament I believe that decision makers have to face these challenges and provide on these topics concrete answers, especially taking into account the next generation's needs.
