The workshop on 9 November 2017 was devoted to the highly topical issue of the impact of Brexit on the EU’s agri-food sector and on the CAP. It delved into 3 specific aspects of Brexit: (1) its impact on the CAP budget (2) its impact on EU-UK agricultural trade flows and (3) possible transitional arrangements in agriculture in light of the future EU-UK relationship.

An impressive array of experts was present to brief Members on these issues, including Ms Eulalia Rubio and Mr Jorg Haas from the Jacques Delors Institute, Ms Cecilia Bellora and Mr Jean Fouré from the Paris-based Centre for International Research and Economic Modelling (CIREM) and Mr Alan Matthews, Professor at Trinity College Dublin.

AGRI held a workshop on 8 November on the agricultural challenges post-2020 in the EU and the preparation of the next CAP reform. The debate on the future of the CAP after 2020 has already started with position papers presented by some Member States (The Netherlands, France), or with the Cork 2.0 conference on the future of rural development policy in September 2016.

Prominent European experts examined and debated possible policy options for direct payments, market measures and risk management tools, and rural development, with a view to fuel into Members' reflexions for the future position of the European Parliament on the next CAP reform.
