… Catholic Church … considers work and cooperative enterprises as ways to live an experience of unity and solidarity that can overcome differences and even social conflicts between individual people and between the various groups. …
 
… cooperatives … true subsidiariety … correct relationship between people, society and institutions … keeping in the right perspective the promotion of the common good and the protection of the individual’s rights.
 
… cooperatives … represents this new type of economy at the service of the person, … sharing … free-giving … fruits of solidarity and brotherhood (Caritas in Veritate, n. 39). …. public authorities, working at the national and international levels, prepare the legislative and financial instruments to ensure that in rural areas cooperatives may be effective tools for agricultural production, food security, social change and a greater improvement of living conditions. …”
