In the second part of our little summer series – by now more of an autumn series – we visited Romain Schneider, Minister of Agriculture, Viticulture and Rural Development and Minister of Social Security, in his beloved hometown of Wiltz, where he showed us some localities of particular importance to him.
Just getting to the interview is a bit of an adventure. The way to the far north of Luxembourg is in fact further than initially assumed, which meant that we arrived later than planned in Wiltz and the minister – embarrassingly – had to wait for us. But this did not dampen Romain Schneider's spirits, thank goodness.
As the Minister of Agriculture, who has had to endure many a long night session in his professional life in the struggle to reform the Common Agricultural Policy, Schneider knows exactly what it means to have to wait for something. In those cases, however, he was not just waiting a few minutes for the Lëtzebuerger Journal, but many, many hours for a successful conclusion to the negotiations.
