ACP and LDC sugar suppliers deplore EC's CAP proposals

The ACP and LDC cane sugar suppliers express their profound concern and dismay at the Commission’s proposals in respect of the elimination of sugar quotas in the context of the CAP reform announced on 12 October 2011.

The ACP and LDCs are of the view that the elimination of sugar quotas as from 2015 disregards the EU market reality, the economic development objectives of the EU’s commitment to their countries as well as the key CAP objective of food security.  Indeed these proposals seriously jeopardize the EC market balance and the future of the sugar industries of the ACP/LDCs.
