Podcast: CAP Reform & Farm Bill progress
Get up to speed with events in the EU & US
Proposals for the next Common Agricultural Policy have been submitted by the European Commission, while the new US Farm Bill is making its way through the Legislative Branch, meaning it is a significant time for the farming sectors on both sides of the Atlantic.
In the latest Down to Agribusiness podcast, members of the Agribusiness Intelligence policy team discuss the potential changes to the CAP and Farm Bill, and provide their expert analysis.
Questions put to IEG Policy’s Chris Horseman and IEG Vantage’s Roger Bernard include:
- How radical a change is the proposed new CAP compared with the current policy, and what aspects will be most affected?
- What impact has Brexit had on the European Commission’s thinking?
- What are the main points of contention between the US House and Senate positions on the Farm Bill?
- Are we likely to see some special measures implemented by the Trump Administration to support farmers impacted by the retalitory import tariffs on agri-food goods such as soybeans?
