At a time when farmers across the country are protesting against low prices and are dumping their fruits and vegetables, the Agriculture Ministry threw a rich cocktail to welcome its new minister.

Trajan Dimkovski was promoted after Ljupco Nikoloski left the post to become Secretary General of his SDSM party. Speeches, a rich buffet and drinks all around was the sight registered at the Ministry today. It came in stark contrast with the recent videos from Rosoman, where peach farmers were throwing their harvest away and chopping the orchards in protest against the low prices which have made work not worth their while.
