Exchange of views on rural development

The proposal for a regulation on support for rural development was debated at the 3137th Council meeting on Agriculture and Fisheries, which was recently held in Brussels. The discussion focused on the actions envisaged to address new challenges within the second pillar along with the instruments proposed under rural development and their definition.
According to most of the delegations, only when the repartition of the envelope by Member State (MS) for the second pillar is known, the content of the proposal can be correctly assessed. While several MS consider that the proposal correctly addresses new challenges within the second pillar, some thought the proposal should focus more on innovation and competitiveness. The vast majority of delegations highlighted there is a need to ensure that the common strategic framework putting the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) in line with structural funds will be consistent with the objective of simplification of the CAP.
