CAP towards 2020: Challenges for the supply of agricultural raw materials in the EU

On 12 October 2011, the Commission adopted a set of draft Regulations to “reshape” the CAP beyond 2013. Are the market instruments and the tools foreseen in this package suitable to efficiently counter balance the effects of extreme volatility? Will they enable the EU to have sustainable supplies of agricultural raw materials?

The aim of this round table is to debate on these issues in order to contribute to the EP positioning. This round table is organised for Members of the European Parliament, EU civil servant and stake-holders.
