Presidency paper on the "Future of the CAP

Ministers at the 2995th Agriculture and Fisheries Council meeting held in Brussels on 22 February 2010 held an exchange of views on the future of the CAP and in particular on market management measures after 2013, based on a presidency background paper and a questionnaire. Ministers welcomed the presidency paper as a valuable contribution for the discussion on the future of the CAP, stressing the importance of striking the right balance between market orientation on the one hand and ensuring the viability of agricultural activity in the EU through appropriate market and crisis management instruments on the other.
Many ministers agreed that the market orientation which the European agriculture achieved as a result of the CAP reforms undertaken since 1992 was sufficient. Many delegations also put a strong focus on the contribution which the existing measures such as direct payments and intervention make in alleviating the price and income risk for farmers.
