The Plan seeks to contribute to creating job opportunities and making living conditions in rural areas attractive. It also aims to make agricultural production, including the production of quality food, a profitable and a socially recognised activity. Furthermore, the Plan aims to ensure the security of food supply for the population, while at the same time significantly improving the environmental conditions and contributing to the renewal of natural resources.
