Brussels, 24 September 2013
The European Parliament, the EU Council of Ministers and the European Commission have reached a political agreement this evening on the few issues on CAP reform (in the context of the Multi-Annual Financial Framework 2014-2020) that remained outstanding after the 26 June political agreement on the reform (see IP/13/613 and MEMO/13/621).
Subject to formal approval by both Institutions and to the adoption of the legal acts on the overall EU budget for 2014-2020, tonight’s accord is the final part of an overall agreement which gives the Common Agricultural Policy a new direction, taking better account of society's expectations.
