Kyriakides appeared before the committee on Wednesday where she presented her policy priorities and answered questions.
Thank you to @EP_Environment and @EP_Agriculture for the challenging 3 hour policy debate. I hope it was just one of many to come in the next 5 years. Many thanks to Chair @pcanfin and all the Members for their great dedication to the health of EU citizens https://t.co/AlMFO0PebM
