23-11-2020 - 16:17

In the context of the exponential growth of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the President of the European Parliament has announced a number of measures to contain the spread of epidemic and to safeguard Parliament's core activities.

The current precautionary measures adopted by the European Parliament to contain the spread of COVID-19 do not affect work on legislative priorities. Core activities are reduced, but maintained to ensure that the Institution's legislative, budgetary, scrutiny functions are maintained.

The meetings will be with remote participation for Members (being able to view and listen to proceedings, ask for the floor and intervene in the meeting). Other participants are invited to follow the meeting through webstreaming.

Following these decisions, the next AGRI Committee meetings will take place in Brussels via videoconference on 30 November 16.30-18.45, 1 December 9.00-12.00 (in camera 10.30-12.00) and 7 December 16.45-18.45.

The AGRI Committee invited DG AGRI (EC) to present its evaluation of the CAP measures applicable to the wine sector. The EU is the world’s leading producer, consumer and exporter of wine. We are however assisting to a change in this trend with a declining on domestic consumption and growing opportunities on the world market, and therefore the wine sector is increasingly focusing on competitiveness and quality rather than on volumes of production.
