Performance and competitiveness
Resolution #105: Performance and competitiveness (Official French version)
To meet these principles aimed at making agriculture more efficient and more competitive, a CPQ government will ensure that our farmers have access:
- to proper training at the cutting edge of technology, not only based on the production methods but also based on modern marketing techniques. Producers will thus garner most of their income from the market and not from grants;
- to the results of dynamic research and development to strengthen our agriculture competitiveness and efficiency;
- to a smaller bureaucracy in order to maximize the time spent managing the farm. We will take the necessary measures to ensure that MAPAQ and M.D.D.E.P. no longer work in isolation in agriculture but coordinate their activities on the ground;
- to an agricultural policy that will meet the specific needs of the regions and their climate. For example, canola doesn't produce good results in southern Québec, while it does in Abitibi, Lac-Saint-Jean and the Lower St. Lawrence region where the temperature is suitable for this crop.
