Jesús Casas will be president of Tragsa

He will leave the Rural Development and Food Management to preside over the public company

LA SIDRA.- Approximately three years ago he had arrived in Asturias to assume the general direction of Rural Development and Agri-food. Now he has been appointed by the Board of Directors of the State Industrial Participation Company as the new president of Tragsa. During those three years, it was common to see Casas in a large number of meetings related to Asturian cider culture, from national fairs to tasting competitions, in addition to the events developed by the Sidra de Asturies PDO. In fact, this magazine interviewed him in 2016 to deal exclusively with topics related to Asturian cider.

Closely linked to the recognition of the Doñana National Park as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO since it was, among other positions, its director; He also committed to relaunching the research work for the recognition of Asturian cider culture from the Ministry of Rural Development, although this commitment did not go beyond the promises and declarations of goodwill without any concrete fact. Recently, in the Festival of the Cider of Nava, Casas participated in the Sidrafórum, a talk discussion that dealt with the recognition of UNESCO. In this forum he said: “Asturian cider culture is an element that mobilizes society, and that is what we want the international organization to recognize; that the model of life of the Asturians deserves to be taken into consideration “.
