The EU's beekeeping sector

24-10-2017

Every year, the EU's 600 000 beekeepers and their 16 million beehives produce 200 000 tonnes of honey. This is not however sufficient to cover demand on the EU market, and the shortfall is made up by imports, above all from China. Threats to bee health and market competition make the economic viability of apiculture a critical matter. EU policies aim therefore to address these issues and promote beekeeping, an activity that is of vital importance to the environment.

Current priorities and challenges in EU agricultural policy

20-06-2017

The European Commission's work programme for 2017 includes a commitment to progress and consult widely on the simplification and modernisation of the common agricultural policy (CAP). A public consultation exercise was launched at the beginning of February 2017 and closed on 2 May 2017.

The European Commission's work programme for 2017 includes a commitment to progress and consult widely on the simplification and modernisation of the common agricultural policy (CAP). A public consultation exercise was launched at the beginning of February 2017 and closed on 2 May 2017. A number of stakeholder organisations and think tanks have issued their reflections on the future shape of EU agricultural policy post 2020. In the last reform of the CAP, the European Parliament had a key role to play in this process. Both the Parliament and the Council will have responsibility to legislate on the Commission's proposals. A key role is performed by the Parliament's Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development. Future discussions on these matters can therefore be anticipated. The Maltese Presidency has identified a number of priorities to guide the discussion on future policy and also held a debate earlier in the year on the future of the CAP in the Agriculture Council. A communication is expected from the Commission before the end of 2017. This briefing provides a short overview of these issues, along with a summary of the key elements of the current CAP, some key features of EU agriculture including the prospects for the main agricultural markets based on the Commission's most recent agricultural outlook report. Recent developments in Council are also covered, and a number of stakeholder perspectives are highlighted.

Common Agricultural Policy and revision of the 2014-2020 MFF

30-11-2016

The EU's 2014-2020 Multiannual Financial Framework provides medium-term expenditure predictability in support of investment in Europe's priorities. The Commission presented its mid-term review/revision of the multiannual EU budget (2014-2020) on 14 September 2016 in Strasbourg. Without increasing spending limits, the package as presented is intended to free up an additional €6.3 billion in financing by 2020. These resources will be used mainly to foster job creation, investment and economic growth ...

The EU's 2014-2020 Multiannual Financial Framework provides medium-term expenditure predictability in support of investment in Europe's priorities. The Commission presented its mid-term review/revision of the multiannual EU budget (2014-2020) on 14 September 2016 in Strasbourg. Without increasing spending limits, the package as presented is intended to free up an additional €6.3 billion in financing by 2020. These resources will be used mainly to foster job creation, investment and economic growth and to address the migration crisis. In this context, the Commission presented a legal proposal (omnibus regulation) that contains changes to the basic EU Financial Regulation and to the main EU funding regulations. The omnibus proposal touches, inter alia, on all four of the basic regulations governing the Common Agriculture Policy. These cover Direct Payments, Rural Development, Common Market Organisation and the ‘Horizontal’ Regulation, covering issues such as funding and controls. The changes that are proposed aim at fine-tuning some elements of the current CAP, as described in this briefing, and making life easier for both farmers and national authorities. Looking ahead, the proposed revision of the 2014-2020 Multiannual Financial Frame-work will prepare the ground for a subsequent MFF proposal in support of EU priorities for the post-2020 period. This could be presented by the end of 2017. With the omnibus regulation proposal, it appears unlikely that a major restructuring of the basic architecture of the CAP will take place in the current programming period. More substantial legal proposals for a post-2020 CAP could be presented in 2018, in line with the post-2020 MFF communication. Such a scenario would enable the European Parliament, as co-legislator, to negotiate the implications of the current CAP revision, and a more substantial post-2020 reform for the CAP in parallel.

EU agricultural promotion measures

17-06-2016

In light of the challenges currently facing the agriculture sector in the EU, an effective promotion policy becomes an important instrument in helping European agriculture to compete on world markets. Given the contribution the agri-food sector makes to total EU exports, it is essential for it to improve its competitiveness and market share. To support this objective, a new promotion policy for EU agricultural products has been developed, applicable since 1 December 2015. Based on a new Regulation ...

In light of the challenges currently facing the agriculture sector in the EU, an effective promotion policy becomes an important instrument in helping European agriculture to compete on world markets. Given the contribution the agri-food sector makes to total EU exports, it is essential for it to improve its competitiveness and market share. To support this objective, a new promotion policy for EU agricultural products has been developed, applicable since 1 December 2015. Based on a new Regulation, the policy introduces significant changes to the EU's information provision and promotion measures. These include an increased annual budget of up to €200 million by 2019, a greater focus on third countries; simplification, an expansion in the scope of measures to allow labelling to specify the origin of products and their brands under certain conditions, easier management of multi-country programmes and an expansion in the scope of eligible products and eligible beneficiaries. The key elements of the new policy are presented alongside details of the main administration and delivery mechanisms including its work programme for 2016. The latter sets out the priorities accorded to promotion activities for both the internal market and for those third countries where there is the highest potential for growth. The first calls for proposals under the new rules closed at the end of April 2016. Though it is too soon to examine the outcome of the 2016 call, it is possible to provide evidence on the potential impact that might be expected from agricultural information and promotion programmes.

Measures to address the crisis in the dairy sector

The Russian ban on agricultural products

21-04-2016

In response to the EU's economic sanctions against Russia in the context of the situation in Ukraine, a Russian ban on certain EU agri-food products has been in place since August 2014. The agricultural sectors most affected by the ban include dairy, fruit and vegetables and meat, reflecting products of which the EU has been an important supplier. Since the ban, the EU has lost more than €5 billion per year of agri-food exports to Russia. This loss has been partially offset by the 6% increase in ...

In response to the EU's economic sanctions against Russia in the context of the situation in Ukraine, a Russian ban on certain EU agri-food products has been in place since August 2014. The agricultural sectors most affected by the ban include dairy, fruit and vegetables and meat, reflecting products of which the EU has been an important supplier. Since the ban, the EU has lost more than €5 billion per year of agri-food exports to Russia. This loss has been partially offset by the 6% increase in the overall value of EU agri-food exports in 2015 in comparison to 2014, with major gains in export values in the USA, China and other key markets. The effects of the ban are not distributed evenly across EU Member States, impacting more on those whose agri-food sector had been more closely connected with the Russian market. In response to the ban, a set of actions have been pursued at EU level, ranging from specific market-support measures, including private storage aid, to actions aimed at promoting EU products either within or outside the EU. The European Commission has also intensified bilateral and regional trade negotiations to create new market opportunities. This includes actions to reduce market barriers in respect of sanitary and phytosanitary (SPS) measures. Member States will decide later this year whether sanctions on Russia are to be renewed.
