Renew Europe MEPs welcome the intensification of the negotiations on reform of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). Discussions are now ongoing at political group level within the European Parliament in order to reach a first reading position during the October II plenary session. This should pave the way for a rapid and satisfactory implementation of a new CAP. 

To make the end of the process efficient and contribute to a renewed and ambitious agricultural policy, Renew Europe has adopted a detailed group position on the remaining open issues, together with key principles for successful CAP reform outlined in a new vision paper.

EDP Executive Vice-President and German MEP Ulrike Müller who is also the  Renew Europe AGRI Coordinator, comments: 'For the new CAP, Renew Europe expresses a clear commitment to the new Delivery Model and the Green Deal. In this respect, our group supports the move from a prescriptive, rules-based approach to a more targeted, result-oriented and tailor-made approach which fulfils the economic and social aims and objectives of the CAP, while meeting Europe's higher environmental and climate ambition. This is one of the cornerstones of CAP reform and is also reflected in the Horizontal Regulation.'
