EC’s Dacian Ciolo? on the CAP reform

Farmers could miss out on huge EU payments if ministers and parliamentarians fail to complete the last set of negotiations for Europe’s new agriculture policy today (24 September).

Ministers and a delegation from the European Parliament will attempt to smooth out legal issues during the last round of negotiations over the EU’s reform of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP).

While most of the CAP reform, including the shape of direct payments, was agreed during a June European Council, a number of outstanding issues remain such as the reduction of grants, flexibility of the rural development pillar and levels of co-funding.

The issues relate mostly to the CAP’s structure in the multi-annual financial framework, the EU’s long-term budget.
