EU: Council debate on the reform of CAP

At the last Council meeting on Agriculture and Fisheries held in Brussels on 28 November 2012,
Ministers had three orientation debates within the framework of the common agricultural policy
(CAP) reform. The discussions focused on three points: the proposal for a regulation establishing rules for direct payments to farmers (direct payments regulation), the proposal for a regulation establishing a common organisation of the markets in agricultural products (Single CMO regulation), respectively the proposal for a regulation on support for rural development (rural development regulation).
Among the discussions, on the sugar quota regime due to expire on 30 September 2015 it was noted that, a number of countries opposed the end of this regime and would like it extended at least until 2020, whilst a number of other delegations supported the planned expiry.
This debate was the fourth one at the level of the Agriculture and Fisheries Council under the Cyprus Presidency.
