For a World Agriculture Organization

At the close of a large demonstration in Paris by cereal farmers (27 April), Mr Sarkozy outlined his vision, goals and programme for French and European agriculture during an interview with La France agricole and Agrapresse.The interview merits special attention because it marks a significant step forward compared with earlier statements. Although the president had previously stressed the need to regulate agricultural markets, he had never gone into the specifics. This time, however, he began his remarks by saying, “what counts is action. Farmers don’t need to hear that they are the salt of the earth, the identity of France, and that they are entitled to all the love and affection of the people. It’s time to take decisions.”By insisting on the strategic dimension of agriculture, both in economic and geopolitical terms, President Sarkozy repeated his recent intention to formally oppose any attempts to dismantle regulatory instruments in Europe, currently enshrined in CAP.
