European Commission welcomes US Commitment to Farm Reform

04/07/2005 - The European Commission today welcomed the apparent willingness shown by US President George W. Bush to overhaul US agricultural subsidies. It hopes that the President's words, in an interview with ITV1 on the eve of the G8 summit, will be translated into genuine and far-reaching reforms which can find their way through Congress when the US Farm Bill is up for revision in 2007.
