    Cyprus will host the EU Mediterranean Ministerial Meeting entitled EU Mediterranean Agriculture and New Challenges, between 20 and 22 of January. Agriculture Ministers of eight EU Mediterranean countries, namely Greece, Spain, France, Italy, Cyprus, Malta, Portugal and Slovenia, will meet in Nicosia, in view of the serious amendments to the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), promoted by the European Commission.

    The meeting, to take place at the invitation of Cypriot Minister of Agriculture, Natural Sources and Environment Fotis Fotiou, aims at ascertaining common problems, noting down the concerns and views as regards the proposed amendments relating to the Mediterranean products and determining common positions for the future of the EU agricultural policy.

    Special issues on the agenda of the meeting are the ongoing CAP review in the fields of fruit and vegetables and the wine sector, an important component of the agricultural economy of the Mediterranean member states, as well as Euro-Mediterranean relations and the negotiations held at the World Trade Organisation. Moreover, Agriculture Ministers will examine the impact which drought has on agricultural production and stock farming, with a view to promote a common position for Mediterranean countries which will be promoted for discussion at the European Commission.
