Presidency presents CAP reform progress report

During the latest Council meeting on Agriculture and Fisheries, the Presidency presented its progress report on the reform of the common agricultural policy (CAP) to the ministers. This was welcomed by member states, as they consider it to be giving an accurate image of the discussions held at the Council level this semester, despite some positions not having been sufficiently reflected upon.
The report indicates the main amendments suggested to the Commission proposals and on which the Presidency has noted broad support from delegations. The Presidency's suggested amendments aim to resolve a number of issues raised by delegations, particularly with a view to ensuring that future CAP legislation is workable in practice and can be implemented in a cost-effective manner.
This report also identifies for each of the proposals the key issues which remain outstanding as at June 2012, including issues contained in the negotiating box for heading 2 of the multiannual financial framework (MFF).
