This publication provides a picture of the likely developments
of agricultural markets up to 2008, based on a certain number of assumptions
and on the statistical information available in May 2001.
It contains three chapters. The first chapter centres on the
market prospects by the year 2008 within the EU and covers the following
products: cereals, oilseeds, meat, milk and the main dairy products. Chapter II
provides a description of the likely prospects of agricultural markets in the
ten Central and Eastern European Countries, which are candidates for accession
to the EU. Finally, a presentation of the medium and long-term prospects of
agricultural world markets, established by different international
organisations and institutes, is given in chapter III.
