Negotiations on CAP reform: a differed partial general approach
June was marked as follows:
- At the informal summit in Sibiu on 3 and 4 June, the Romanian Presidency of the Council took note of the fact that it would not finally lead towards a partial general approach to the reform regulations, as Member States prefer not to go any further in the negotiations in the absence of financial prospects.
- At the Agricultural and Fisheries Council of June 18 in Luxembourg, ministers praising the progress report on the reform also noted the many points that will be on the agenda under the Finnish presidency and remain blocked, pending the clarification on the 2021-2027 MFF.
