Romanian Agriculture Minister Petre Daea has chaired, on Monday, the Agriculture and Fisheries Council in Brussels, with Common Agricultural Policy after 2020 on the Agenda, but also with Romania's priorities in the field, such as plant and animal health or support for farmers.

During its EU Presidency, Romania wishes to reach progress in negotiations to modernize and simplify the Common Agricultural Policy after 2020. Romanian EU Presidency also wants to identify measures to encourage production of plant proteins so that the European Union becomes independent in this sector.

In the field of animal health, Romania aims to implement measures for the control and eradication of major animal diseases, as well as on the antimicrobial resistance in veterinary medicine. 

Strengthening position of farmers in the food supply chain will remain a priority during Romania’s EU Presidency. Envisaged objective is formal adoption of the Unfair Commercial Practices Directive. This will improve the position of farmers who are currently considered to be the most vulnerable link in the food supply chain.
