Rule 130

 Subject:  Reasons for reduction in EU purchase price of maize
 Answer in writing 

Major market disruption linked with EU maize production preceded investments in renewable energy, yet as a result of these investments, the maize produced is being used in a more environment‐ and climate-friendly way and is also serving as high-protein feed material, thus easing the protein shortage in the EU.

The Commission recently decided to reduce the purchase of maize. In doing so it is endangering the ability of the EU’s farmers to maintain their competitiveness when there is a trade war or when there is a tangible reduction in common agricultural policy financing.

Why does the Commission want to reduce the EU’s purchase of maize when trade wars are looming?

How will the Commission promote the environment‐ and climate-friendly processing of maize in the EU?
