CELCAA calls for elimination of trade barriers impacting European Agricultural Commodities

In light of the EU-Japan summit scheduled on 19th November 2013, CELCAA, the representative body for European Traders in agriculture commodities, calls on the European negotiators to support ambitious market access for agricultural commodities to Japan. Japan is the fourth main export market for European agricultural commodities and food products and a FTA could support the steady growth of domestic consumption of European agricultural products. CELCAA calls for the phasing-out of the non-trade-barriers, which has become one of the main barriers to trade to Japan, and for specific market access for agricultural products under TRQs, or elimination of tariffs on European products.

Last chance to make the CAP reform count for young farmers, warns CEJA President Joris Baecke

On 28 May 2013, CEJA President Joris Baecke addressed all 27 EU Ministers for Agriculture, the European Commissioner Dacian Cioloş, and COMAGRI Chairman Paolo De Castro, on the subject of the CAP reform. As the last meeting of Ministers until the Agriculture Council of 24 June 2013 in Luxembourg – where the Irish Presidency is hoping to conclude a deal – this informal gathering in Dublin is likely to be crucial for identifying potential areas of compromise in this CAP reform. Mr Baecke seized this opportunity to urge Ministers to adopt a mandatory young farmer top-up of direct payments, arguing for the importance of a binding measure as against a voluntary one.
