LRF/Sweden will be the chairman of NBC during 2019-2021 and it also leads BFFE the following years starting this autumn. Markus Hoffman will take care of the practical issues at the beginning. MTK will keep and update web pages as well as take care of the delivery of newsletters also in the future.

At the NBC meeting ​​​​​Liisa Pietola presented the activities of BFFE after the NBC meeting in Aarhus in 2018.  See attached presentation.

BFFE has an observer status in HELCOM. This is important position because BFFE is the only one who presents the views of farmers in meetings. The other observers are mainly environmental organizations. Observers can submit initiatives to HELCOM. BFFE's latest initiative was to report soluble phosphorus instead of total P. Finally, HELCOM pays also more attention to the internal P-load of the Baltic Sea. This is largely due to BFFE and its activity to keep it in focus.

It is important to continue HELCOM and water related work but BFFE is also dealing with climate and biodiversity issues.  All initiatives concerning these issues are appreciated.

The new RBMP planning period is underway. It is important to go on discussion and exchange of experiences between countries.

The Estonian Chamber of Agriculture and Commerce has joined the BFFE family. Mr Roomet Sõrmus is the contact person.

It was discussed that, if possible, it may be useful to organize e.g. a seminar back-to-back with other suitable meeting. It would be important that members also meet each other face to face. ​​​​​​​
