 Subject:  Agricultural sector in Europe
 Answer in writing 

The agricultural sector in Europe is in crisis, while the Russian embargo and the crisis in China have negatively influenced prices for beef, pork and milk. The Russian embargo alone has undermined an European export market worth at least EUR 5 billion.

What measures are being taken by the Commission to facilitate access of European agricultural products to new markets? What are these new markets?

What instruments have been or will be used by the Commission to compensate the losses of agricultural producers arising from the Russian embargo?

What will be the final amount of this compensation?
