                                        Temporary problems and key tasks

       Rural Payments Agencies:

              Latency to release and/or accept public sector information (PSI) to/from
               value added service providers in electronic form (HU = exemption)

              Despite the EU PSI Directive is transposed to all V4 member states
               (declared but not implemented ...)

              They consider service providers as competitors and not as
               complementary partners in the value-chain

       Advisors (eFarmers) and Farmers:

              Involving additional farm advisors to the eFarmer network

              To enforce the Farmer - eFarmer clusters

              Improving confidence and skills of eFarmers/Farmers for using Internet
               (source of funding: Human resource development of National structural
               funds)
