Adopted EESC opinion on CAP reform
 
The EESC has adopted its opinion on CAP reform on 17 October. A strong CAP, with a strong budget supporting a sustainable European farming sector involving the highest standards is very important for the European Union and all its citizens. Modernising and simplifying the CAP is essential to make it more fit for purpose. The EESC welcomes the proposals to strengthen the farmer's position in the food supply chain. Increased transparency is essential at every level from consumer to primary producer.
 
Call for proposals for the organisation of the opening event - deadline for submissions: 31/10/2018
Implementation of EU environmental legislation in the spotlight in 2019
As the Commission is getting ready to publish the second edition of the Environmental Implementation Review (EIR) next year, the EESC is currently preparing an exploratory opinion which will highlight the important role that civil society - employers, workers and other representatives of society − can play for the effective implementation of environmental protection measures.
Implementation of environmental laws will be put into the spotlight next year also at the EU Green Week (13-17 May 2019). The official opening event will have a particular prominence, setting the tone for the Week's debates, and the European Commission is now launching a call for proposals to select an organisation(s) that, in partnership with the European Commission, will host the official opening event of EU Green Week 2019.

Adoption de l'avis du CESE sur la réforme de la PAC

Le CESE a adopté son avis sur la réforme de la PAC le 17 octobre. Une politique de la PAC forte, dotée d’un solide budget et soutenant un secteur agricole durables auquel s’appliquent les normes les plus élevées revêt une grande importance pour l’Union européenne et pour l’ensemble de ses citoyens. La modernisation et la simplification de la PAC sont essentielles pour faire en sorte que celle-ci soit mieux à même de répondre aux besoins. Le CESE accueille favorablement les propositions visant à renforcer la place de l’agriculteur dans la chaîne d’approvisionnement alimentaire. Une plus grande transparence des prix du marché est essentielle à tous les niveaux, du consommateur au producteur primaire.
