EU Presidency to focus on agreement on CAP reform

At the last Council of the EU meeting on Agriculture and Fisheries held in Brussels on Monday 28 January 2013, the Presidency presented its work programme and priorities on agriculture and a roadmap for common agricultural policy (CAP) reform to the Council.
During this semester, the Presidency will focus its action on securing interinstitutional political
agreement on the reform of the CAP by the end of June this year. Thus, the Presidency expects to achieve a comprehensive Council position by end of March 2013.
At the same time, the Presidency will continue to work with the European Parliament on the
alignment of the current agriculture legal framework with the provisions of the Treaty of Lisbon.
Most of the delegations endorsed the tight schedule proposed by the Presidency for the CAP reform, given that the new policy is supposed to come into force starting 2014.
However, the EU countries underlined that any advancement on the CAP reform is linked to an agreement at the next European summit on the EU budget (Multi-annual financial framework (MFF) 2014-2020), to take place in the second week of February.
