Agri-Fisherie Council: welcomed progress… but still a lot of work ahead
Delegations held an exchange of views on the Presidency progress report. European Agriculture Ministers broadly welcomed the report, saying that it accurately reflects the state of play in negotiations on the CAP reform package, while simplifications introduced for the New Delivery Model (performance clearance & average unit amounts) were going in the right direction. There is still a long way to go in the process with further technical work required over the coming months to improve the system of reliable indicators, performance review, implementation of eco-schemes, control systems & penalties (conditionality for small-holders), definition of eligible hectares, sectoral interventions & voluntary coupled support (level & scope of sectors).
