The Common Agricultural Policy

The Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) of the European Union is the first community policy of the union and is being funded by almost half of the European budget. This is why the reform of this policy, especially in the context of the negotiations on the multiannual financial framework (MFF) for the period 2014-2020, is a long and very controversial process.

The #Eurogroup finance ministers are gathering today for their regular meeting with a main issue on the agenda the 2nd review of the 3rd bailout programme for #Greece. There is another issue hanging in the air, which is not on the agenda - will the Dutch Finance Minister Jeroen Dijsselbloem remain on the position as chair of the Eurogroup since his party sustained huge losses at the parliamentary elections in the Netherlands last week.
