This paper has been developed to put forward AREFLH’s recommendations in regards to the drafting of the future 2018 Annual Work Programme on information provision and promotion measures concerning agricultural products implemented in the internal market and in third countries.  Drafted with the help of its Promotion Commission, the position paper calls for:
  • Striking the right balance in budget lines between the internal market and third countries as well as amongst simple and multi programmes
  • Simplifying the Annual Work Programme’s priorities
  • Strengthening the budget dedicated to EU Quality Schemes, in particular for fruit and vegetables
  • Integrating SPS barriers in the European Commission’s macroeconomic analysis for third countries
  • Provisions for serious market disturbance, loss of consumer confidence or other specific problems
  • Prioritising the sectors severely affected by the consequences of the Russian embargo

 The position paper is available here.
