As of September 3, the Italian government has allocated 100 million euros to subsidize the reduction of wine production, but less than 39 million euros have been successfully distributed so far. Minister of Agriculture Teresa Bellanova, who was also present at the meeting, said that the unused part of the budget will be withdrawn by the end of 2020, so it is very important to optimize the subsidy policy as soon as possible and make the best use of the budget to help the wine industry develop.

In addition, the Minister of Agriculture expressed his support for boosting the EU government"s OCM wine promotion budget. The current OCM budget of €100 million per year is expected to rise to €150 million.
