Both Latvia and Estonia are keen to protect forestry investments made within their respective nations after teaming up to protect jointly defend direct payments to farmers.

In a move of solidarity, both Latvian prime minister Valdis Dombrovskis and Estonian minister for griculture Helir-Valdor Seeder met this week and hammered a range of common objectives which would ensure fairer direct payments for farmers.

According to Baltic Course, the Latvian prime minister holds a view that it is necessary to set a minimum level of direct payments at a minimum of 80 per cent per hectare of the EU average.

Both governments are to come up with a range of measures over the coming weeks which will see fairer payments distributed to the nation's farmers.

The two nations already cooperate on a series of matters including fishing, food and education and it is hoped that this latest cooperation will see a strong outcome for both nations' farmers.
