Overview of the work of the AGRI Committee during the 2009-2014 legislative term
This document gives an overview of the main activities and initiatives of the Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development during the 7th term of the European Parliament. The beginning of that parliamentary term coincided with the completion of the Lisbon Treaty ratification process and application of the codecision procedure, giving Parliament new powers and remits in the legislative process in this area.
Czeslaw Adam Siekierski elected Chair of the Committee on Agriculture
Czeslaw Adam Siekierski (EPP, PL) is the new Chair of the Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development (AGRI), elected by acclamation on 7 July 2014.
During its constituent meeting, the Committee has also elected its Vice-Chairs Eric Andrieu (S&D, FR - 1st Vice-Chair), Janusz Wojciechowski (ECR, PL - 2nd Vice-Chair), Clara Eugenia Aguilera Garcia (S&D, ES - 3rd Vice-Chair) and Vasilica Viorica Dăncilă (S&D, RO - 4th Vice-Chair).
Together, the Chair and Vice-Chairs make up the Bureau of the Committee, elected for a two-and-a-half-year term.
After the election of a President, Vice-Presidents and Quaestors of the European Parliament in Strasbourg last week, parliamentary committees convened on Monday in Brussels to elect chairpersons and their deputies for next two and a half years.
