Ministry of Agriculture, Viticulture and Rural Development // The Luxembourg Government
The areas of competence of the Ministry of Agriculture, Viticulture and Rural Development are the food production at the level of agriculture, viticulture and horticulture, the aspects of food safety linked to primary production, the rural development and consumer protection.
For agriculture to be modern, multifunctional and, above all, sustainable, it must be characterised by a complementarity of productivity, protection of the environment and animal welfare, product quality, employment and regional balance. The national strategy for this sector accords with the six priorities laid down in the rules enacted by the European Parliament and the Council relating to the provision of support for rural development by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.
