Agriculture Commissioner Dacian Cioloș on the Common Agricultural Policy

Dacian Cioloș, present Agriculture Commissioner, met with Rose O’Donovan, editor of Agra Facts / Agra Focus, in the context of the celebrations marking the 50th Anniversary of the CAP.

The present Commissioner sees 50 years of a Common Agriculture Policy in Europe as half a century of evolution. Moving away from a system that encouraged overproduction to a common policy consisting of decoupled incentives & practices that focus on the environment. Commissioner Cioloș believes that the focus of CAP, for now and the future, should lie on how to manage the production capacity of our soil and at the same time guard the role this land has to play in maintaining bio-diversity throughout Europe. Accordingly CAP does not only entail direct payments any longer, but as well includes fields as Rural Development. The Romanian Commissioner closes off with his personal view on the next 50 years of CAP; he believes that as long as there is a place for food in European society, there is place for a Common Agricultural Policy.
