to the Council
Rule 130
Ramón Luis Valcárcel Siso (PPE)

 Subject:  Priorities of the Romanian Presidency — Agriculture
 Answer in writing 

Romania has just assumed the rotating Presidency of the Council of the European Union for the first six months of 2019. Under the principle of cohesion, and as a sign of solidarity between Europeans, Romania has announced four priority areas of action focused on convergence, security, multilateralism and shared values.

However, no mention is made of Romania’s position on the common agricultural policy (CAP). As one of the most integrated and unifying EU policies, the CAP is vitally important both for maintaining the agricultural sector and for instilling high plant health standards that guarantee the quality of products distributed to consumers.

Similarly, the CAP encourages young families and professionals to settle in rural areas, and consolidates farmers’ position at a suitable part of the value chain.

1. What are this Council’s priorities in terms of agriculture?

2. In view of the ongoing negotiations on the CAP, what is Council’s position on the food chain, Russia’s veto, the inter-generational transition and organic production?
