France: More time for convergence of agricultural subsidies

The European Commission seeks to end aid per hectare based on the level of production from the 1990s. The European Commissioner for Agriculture, Dacian Cioloș, has also called for the convergence of regional and national subsidies by 2020, in order to avoid destabilising effects on producers.
At the Council of Ministers of Agriculture on 22 October, France’s Minister of Agriculture, Stéphane Le Foll, agreed with the Commissioner, but asked for flexibility and more time, stating that 2019-2020 would be too soon to achieve full convergence. Italy, Spain, Austria, Ireland and Belgium supported his statement. The Eastern European countries, on the other hand, seek to speed up the process to avoid continued disadvantages.
