EU Presidency programme on Agriculture

The completion of the work for the approval and entry into force of the Common agriculture policy (CAP) reform package, and negotiating with the European Parliament and the adoption of a proposal for the transitional CAP provisions in 2014 on aspects of CAP reform entering into force in January 2015 - in particular for direct payments and rural development – will be among the agricultural policy priorities of the new Lithuanian Presidency of the European Union (for the period July – December 2013).

The new presidency (inaugurated on 1st July 2013) presented its work programme and priorities for agriculture and fisheries at the last Council meeting on Agriculture and Fisheries, held in Brussels on 15 July 2013.
Other priorities on the agricultural agenda for the next six months are the following:
•    Initiating the work on a proposal on information and promotion for agricultural products within and outside the EU, focusing on a more flexible response to the specific needs of different markets and the simplification of programme administration;
•    Initiating negotiations on a proposal for a Common organisation of the market organisation in the fruit and vegetable sector including better administration and implementation of measures in the fruit and vegetable sector, as related to the organisation of producers, their operating funds and programmes.
