THE COMMON AGRICULTURAL POLICY (CAP) AFTER 2013: FAIRER, MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY, STRONGER, FINANCED BETTER, AND PROVIDING SUPPORT TO BULGARIAN FARMERS

The press conference was also attended by representatives of the Ministry of Agriculture and Food, who presented to ESC the position in the Bulgarian government on the CAP reform proposed by the EC. They expressed their satisfaction that ESC's resolution overlaps to a great extent with the proposals of the government.

In conclusion, ESC proposes that a broad public discussion be held in order to define a clear strategy for the future development of the agricultural sector and creating an effective model for agricultural production in Bulgaria, with the participation of a wide range of representatives of the legislative and executive powers, social partners, experts, agricultural produces' associations, NGOs, and other stakeholders.

ESC calls for the adoption of unified national position on the CAP which could be jointly defended by all Bulgarian representatives in the European institutions and the government. This will be of great benefit to Bulgaria in the negotiations for an equitable allocation of CAP resources among Member States for the next programming period 2014-2020.
