The Ministry of Agriculture has prepared a draft Law on Wine, after consultations with producers of the wine and viticulture sector in order to exchange views and better understand the requirements of producers and the framework that must be adhered to by the Ministry.The Wine Act is drafted for the purpose of consolidating European Union regulations with national regulations in the wine and viticulture sector in order to regulate a single legal basis for the adoption of implementing regulations on competencies at the national level. At the same time, the areas currently prescribed at the national level by the Law on Wine and the Law on the Common Organization of the Market of Agricultural Products and special measures and rules related to the market of agricultural products will be connected.The aim of drafting the draft law on wine and all measures it adopts is to define a clear legal framework for the economic conduct of grape and wine production and ultimately the sale of wine for income in market-transparent conditions with the inclusion of tools to combat the “gray market”.Four new regions are being establishedThe draft law on wine enables the association of winemakers and winegrowers at the national and regional level, who are given a new active role in the promotional activities of winemakers and work on the marketing system of Croatian wines and will thus contribute more actively than before . Four new regions are being established (both wine and marketing): Slavonia and the Croatian Danube region; Croatian Istria and Kvarner; Dalmatia and Bregovita Hrvatska. In addition, the Draft Law on Wine clearly defines the distinctive framework for the production of grapes for own needs in a very limited scope on areas up to 0,1 ha from those producers of grapes, must and wine in production, business and market-oriented coverage .This Draft Proposal of the Law on Wine regulates the legal basis for performing more efficient administrative control of all data that grape and wine producers are obliged to submit. At the same time, the field control carried out by the field wine supervisors will be strengthened in order to check the compliance of the submitted data with the actual situation, which strengthens the system of traceability of grape and wine production.”With the new Law on Wine, we bring a clear legal framework for the production of grapes and wine, the sale of wine in market-transparent conditions, we strengthen the role of wine associations and wine marketing. ” – said Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Agriculture Tomislav Tolusic and added “In addition to the Act, in cooperation with winemakers, we are adopting a new National Support Program for Winemakers for the period 2019-2023, which increases the amount of funding and introduces a new measure to promote wine with 80% refund. We are opening tenders for the new five-year period in October this year. “The Croatian Center for Agricultural Food and Rural Affairs, the Institute of Viticulture and Enology retains the role of the holder of sensory evaluation of wine, but regional wine organizations are actively involved in proposing evaluators, and only wine evaluation is carried out by commissions with majority regional evaluators. This ensures an increase in the level of quality of evaluation as well as the quality of the wines themselves, because the evaluation process is carried out by evaluators who know best the characteristics of the wine of a particular region.RELATED NEWS:NIKOLA BENVENUTI, VINISTRA: ISTRIAN WINERS HAVE LONG RECOGNIZED THE STRENGTH OF THE BRAND, THE IMPORTANCE OF COMMUNITY AND ASSOCIATION FOR POSITIONING ON THE WINE MAP OF THE WORLDSAŠA ŠPIRANEC: WINERS MUST BE ORGANIZED IN FOUR GREAT ASSOCIATIONS: SLAVONIA, DALMATIA, ISTRIA AND KVARNER, AND HILLY CROATIA

The 22-year-old was presented with the special accolade at the Aon Training Complex after a year in which he successfully lobbied the UK government to provide free school meals for children over the summer holidays. Marcus also recently announced the formation of a national food task force to recommend further policy changes and in June became the youngest-ever recipient of an honorary degree from The University of Manchester. Rashford, who along with team-mate Mason Greenwood was also nominated for the PFA’s Young Player of the Year award, also enjoyed his best season yet on the pitch for United, scoring 22 goals in 44 games as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side finished third in the Premier League and reached three cup semi-finals. On the PFA Merit award for 2020, he said: “It’s obviously a huge honour and I just hope it encourages and promotes other players to do things to help as much as they can. Of course I’m very happy and I’ll definitely continue to do my best to help people.”Advertisement Loading… On his child food poverty project, he said: “I was injured during lockdown and at the beginning I was working towards getting back with the team and stuff like that but there were conversations going on saying there might not be games until September. When I was sat at home I just needed something to work towards and a goal to achieve. So that was just something I spoke about with my brothers over the phone and the rest of my family. We just tried to find the best way to try and help people.” “It’s been a long journey but I think the first phase was probably the hardest bit, learning and self-teaching who the right people to get in contact with to help these children were especially. We had the ideas but we didn’t know where to pitch them, or who to pitch them to, so that was probably the most difficult phase of everything really. That was right at the beginning of lockdown.” read also:Rashford, Martial, VAR keep Man Utd on course for top-four finish “What we’ve done so far is only a short-term answer and me and my team behind me are just trying to find plans on how we can help these children for the rest of their childhood really and long-term answers to the problem. At the moment we don’t have the answers but we’ll do our best to try and find them and progress the situation that they’re in the best way we can.” “It’s been a year that’s been quite difficult for me, with injuries and niggles and stuff that I’ve just had to deal with as and when the games come up. It’s been a tough season but also a season where I’ve matured a lot and it’s been a big year of learning for me. I’ve always said, as long as I’m learning and improving, I’m happy and hopefully next year we can continue to do that, but we need to add that little bit of getting over the line and winning trophies. Obviously [I got to] three semi-finals with United and we’ve not quite got over the line so it’s something that we need to definitely learn from. It’s a young group so I’m sure we’ll learn and improve and hopefully next season we can get some trophies.”On the new season, he said: “Yeah, I’m definitely excited. Like I mentioned before about last season, we missed out on those trophies but by very fine margins. Hopefully next year we can go that extra step. Trophies is what drives this club and it’s what’s important to all the players so it’s something we need to have in the future and I think the players understand that. I’m just looking forward to being involved in those games.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享

DES MOINES — Iowa Secretary of State Paul Pate says he’s continuing to work on a plan to fix the flaws in Iowa’s list of people who cannot vote due to felony convictions. “My office is going to be assigning more resources to this issue,” Pate says, “but I want to make sure the legislature is aware of that and will choose to support that effort.”Iowa is one of two states that doesn’t automatically restore voting rights to felons who complete their sentence. The Des Moines Register has reported some Iowans have been wrongly identified as felons and their ballots were improperly thrown out. This summer, the Brennan Center for Justice and the League of Women Voters of Iowa warned Pate that the situation might violate federal law.Pate says he’ll present options to lawmakers and they’ll decide how to proceed. “It’s kind of like a menu: ‘Here’s what we can do. Here’s what some of those projected costs are,’” Pate says. “And then the legislature and the governor’s office will have something to say about what pieces they’re going to fund.”A Brennan Center lawyer says she expected to see Pate’s proposal released in mid-October, before this week’s municipal and school board elections.
More results from the Iowa Democratic Party’s Caucuses were released overnight — showing 97 percent of precincts reporting and a race too close to call.The latest results show a near tie between Pete Buttigieg and Bernie Sanders in the delegate race. Buttigieg is ahead by just one-tenth of a percent — or FOUR state delegate equivalents. During a conference call with donors and supporters after 7 p.m. Wednesday, Buttigieg referred to “historic success in Iowa” for his campaign, but Buttigieg’s campaign manager predicted the race would get tighter. Sanders’ campaign called the delayed results “deeply frustrating” and pointed to Sanders’ lead in the so-called “popular vote” in Iowa. Sanders has a chance to take the lead in delegates, too, if results from satellite caucus locations go his way. At 12:25 this morning, the Iowa Democratic Party announced the results from 53 precincts are still under review and one precinct’s results are still “in transit.” It appears some precinct chairs sent their paper records to the party via the U.S. Postal Service.The developer of the smartphone app for reporting results on Caucus night told Bloomberg News he feels “really terrible” that his company’s coding threw the process into disarray. Bloomberg News also is reporting the back-up telephone line for calling in results was flooded with calls from Trump supporters who found the hotline number on documents posted online.
