On 16 June 2021, the PETI and AGRI Committees will organise a joint hearing on How to treat farmers in a fair and equal manner across the EU. The hearing will begin presenting two petitions from Lithuania and Poland complaining about the fact that farmers still receive direct payments per hectare below the EU average. It will be structured in two panels; the first panel will discuss the currently on-going CAP reform; the second panel will deal with how to solve inequality in CAP payments.

The European Commission will also take part in the debate, giving participants the opportunity to discuss ways to improve this situation for the benefit of the citizens.
