EU Ministers for Agriculture and Fisheries met on 28 November 2008 in Brussels, to discuss the follow-up to the informal meeting on the future of the common agricultural policy after 2013 and solidarity and openness in agriculture. The meeting was an opportunity to elaborate on the discussions on the future of the common agricultural policy after 2013 started at the informal meeting in Annecy in September. Also on the agenda was the proposal amending the European Programme of Aid to the Poorest (PEAD). The aim of this amendment is, because of the decrease in intervention stocks, to increase the range of products that can be provided and to facilitate the buying of foodstuffs on the market. The Ministers were also scheduled to have lunch with Louis Michel, Member of the EC in charge of Development and Humanitarian Aid, to discuss agriculture’s contribution to development, particularly in the areas most affected by the food crisis.
