The Farm to Fork Strategy

On Monday, the committees on Agriculture and Environment will hold a joint meeting on the “Farm to Fork Strategy for a fair, healthy and environmentally friendly food system”. The ECR Group stresses that the strategy must lead to a fair, stable and sustainable supply chain for food production. The Group calls for a comprehensive impact assessment of the Green Deal targets on food security and farmers’ income. The strategy must ensure access to new and innovative tools, boost consumer responsibility and trust, and should not only focus on one specific model of agriculture but on how to promote sustainability across the whole sector which is considerably diverse in Europe.

When: Monday @ 5 pm

A closer partnership with Africa

On Wednesday, the Committee on Development will hold the postponed vote from 29 October on an own initiative report on “A New EU-Africa Strategy: a partnership for sustainable and inclusive development”. The ECR is of the opinion that Africa and Europe should seize new opportunities whilst the EU should refrain from making ideological references to gender equality as well as sexual and reproductive health.

Vote: Wednesday @ 10.30 am

A new EU-US agenda for global change

On Thursday, the Committee on International Trade will hold an exchange of views on the trade and economic aspects of ‘A new EU-US agenda for global change’. The ECR Group believes that strengthening EU US relations must be a priority and supports the EU proposal for a renewed transatlantic relationship.

When: Thursday @ 9 am
