Budapest (MTI) – Hungary and Romania will coordinate their agricultural diplomacy efforts in the planning and shaping of European Union farm policy (CAP), Hungarian Farm minister Sándor Fazekas and his Romanian counterpart Achim Irimescu agreed in Pericei (Szilágyperecsen), in north-western Romania, on Saturday.
Following his talks reviewing bilateral agricultural relations with the Romanian minister, Fazekas told MTI over the phone that coordinating the EU’s common agricultural policy was the most important topic of the discussion.
Both Hungary and Romania are interested in the existence of a strong common agricultural policy in the EU, with appropriate funding, he said.
The two countries also agree that the CAP must be simple and farmer-friendly, and that access to funds should also be easy in order to ensure that farms can be operated in a modern and competitive way, he added.
The two ministers discussed veterinary health issues as well.
