New strategy to improve animal welfare before the Council

As we reported in recent weeks, the European Commission adopted a new four-year strategy (2012-2015) that aims to further improve the welfare of animals in the European Union.  The Council, recently briefed by the Commission on this strategy, generally welcomed the main elements proposed.
Member states welcomed some of the key points of the strategy such as having an harmonised implementation of the current legislative framework in this area, keeping consumers or better informed or optimising synergies with the CAP.
However, some delegations pointed out the need for measures to ensure the global competitiveness of EU operators vis-à-vis third countries that do not apply the same animal welfare standards.
