The Liberalisation of Planting Rights in the EU Wine Sector

16-04-2012

The study analyses the theme of production potential regulation and of the planned abolishment of the planting rights regime considering the constraints defined by the CAP evolution, the current situation of the market, the role in the market of different regions and the structural complexity of the European wine industry. The study, starting from the analysis of the implementation of the planting rights regime across the EU and through an investigation of what could be the effects of the abolishment of the planting rights regime, defines which should be the policies to: a) counterbalance the effects of the liberalization of plantation; b) improve the functioning of the planting rights regime by implementing a new mechanism of functioning.
