Summary of the expertise on the Communication of the Commission of European Communities

to the European Council and European Parliament

‘Better access for rural areas to modern ICT’



The European Commission (KE) in its Communication notes that the use of information and communication technologies (ICT) on farms, agrifood sector, entrepreneurs, business-related institutions, producer groups from rural area can be a factor determining an increase in their competitiveness on local, regional and global markets leading to the scale effect.

As regards farms and agrifood sector, the European Commission notes that a lack of effective mechanism of popularising the advantages of ICT implementation has a negative effect on the agrifood sector, which results in: limiting the competitiveness of farmers, lack of innovative farm management forms implementation, limiting the adjustment of the enterprise to changing market requirements, limiting growth and quality enhancement of produce, lack of knowledge about the changes in market trends, limited access to knowledge and new technologies, limited use of new e-services available.

Common ICT implementation to agrifood sector and farms as well as Micro, Small, and Medium-Sized Enterprise Sector in rural areas can, however, have a positive effect on establishing cooperation, enhancing competitiveness, increasing efficiency, shortening working time connected with commercial transactions (e-commerce, e-business), implementing rationalisations and innovations,  developing new activity, diversifying farmer’s income, economic and social development in a given region.

The Commission, realising an essential difference in the degree of ICT use in rural and urban areas, points to the necessity of continued actions to ensure the access to broadband Internet and ICT implementation, allocating additional funds for that purpose, 

          According to the Communication of the European Commission, the scope of activities connected with ICT implementation, especially in the agrifood sector and forestry, has been still insufficient. A lack of awareness of the benefits of the widely understood information and communication technologies is a reason for a missing interest in ICT implementation by agrifood sector entrepreneurs.

The Commission, in its guidelines, shows that the ICT actions should cover ‘activities such as PC ownership, professional ICT and e-business training for farmers, food processors, rural agricultural and non-agricultural businesses as well as digital literacy actions for the rural population’.

The expertise has been commissioned by the Employers-Lessors and Farm Owners Association as part of the project of the Office of the Committee for European Integration ‘Reinforcement of the active participation of Poland in the EU legislation co-financed from the funds of the Norwegian Financial Mechanism.
