La maggior parte delle commissioni organizza audizioni regolarmente in quanto consentono di consultare esperti e discutere temi fondamentali.

The aim of this hearing was to offer Members a better understanding of the main current issues and to encourage a general discussion on the future prospects of plant breeding in the EU.

Debates followed presentations made by experts on both parts.
The hearing was held under the Presidency of Mr Siekierski, and the leadership of Mr Dantin. It allowed high representatives of various regions from different Member States to detail how they implement locally the second pillar of the CAP and have the ambition to present a pragmatic and concrete follow-up of the CAP reform.
