The Future of UK Agriculture Policy
THURSDAY, 30TH MARCH 2017 CENTRAL LONDON THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
Guest of Honour: Mike Rowe, Deputy Director, Future Agriculture Policy, Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs
In the context of Brexit, this timely seminar will bring together policymakers and key stakeholders to discuss the future agriculture policy in the UK and priorities for moving forwards from the Common Agricultural Policy.
Planned sessions look at priorities for the UK Government in developing new international trade agreements; what next for UK farming subsidies - in light of the Chancellor’s announcement that CAP Pillar 1 funding will be guaranteed until 2020; the future farming policy landscape, including meeting challenges for food sustainability and mapping the timeline for creating a reformed system of agricultural subsidy to support UK farmers.
Further discussion will also consider best practice to improve the efficiency and growth of UK agriculture production, and next steps for supporting the rural economy.
