Can new niche markets save EU farmers’ income? What should the post-2020 Common Agricultural Policy look like in order to support an export-driven farming sector?

The Russian embargo has put enormous pressure on already struggling European Union agricultural markets. Trade between Russia and the EU dropped by more than €163.4bn between 2013 and last year, and overnight, Union farmers and agricultural cooperatives lost their main export market, worth €5.5bn.

Severely hit by the Russian ban, the European Commission has tried to reach new export outlets in the medium-term.
