Poland rejects CAP concessions

by: Keith Nuthall

October 31, 2003, just-food.com: Poland has rejected new proposals that will make it and the other nine countries up for entry into the European Union liable for recent changes to the EU common agricultural policy (CAP).

Poland’s Europe minister Danuta Huebner has complained that the plans were “unacceptable”. Talking to EU political website Eupolitix.com, she dismissed Commission claims that the changes amounted to technical tinkering to bring the membership agreements in line with the new legal reality.

“The commission may not want to renegotiate, but seeing as these proposals are unacceptable in their current form, we’re going to have to at least ‘rediscuss’,” said Huebner.

The proposals were unveiled this week by the European Commission to amend the accession agreements with the ten countries joining the European Union (EU) next May.
