CEJA: CAP simplification exercice is “misguided” #CEJA #EU #agriculture

Representatives from CEJA – European Council of Young Farmers – issued a press release yesterday 17th November in Brussels, expressing their concern at latest CAP simplification exercice, which gives Member States the flexibility in determining whether partnerships between young farmers and others are able to access aid funds.

They warn the risk that many young farmers which are in partnerships may not benefit at all from the scheme in some Member States, endangering the 2% of the budget supposedly dedicated to young farmers.

CEJA represents the political interests of around two million young farmers from across Europe. Its main objectives are to facilitate the installation of young farmers, to inform and to train them as well as act as a forum for communication and dialogue between them.
