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.

In this subject euinside will follow the developments of this process and will present as much as possible view points and the interests of some member states.

#CVM The latest Eurobarometer poll on the perceptions of the Bulgarians and Romanians about the Cooperation and Verification Mechanism illustrates the growing gap between Bulgaria and Romania in terms of implementation of the benchmarks in the annual reports. Almost a third of the Romanians say the situation with the shortcomings in the judiciary is improving. The attitudes in neighbouring Bulgaria are quite the opposite. Only 24% are of the opinion that the situation with the fight against organised crime is improving which is down from 38% in 2012. 13% of the respondents said that the situation in the judiciary is improving. In 2012, their number was 33%. The complete Eurobarometer research can be found here euinsi.de/x6hr
