Evaluation of the EU agricultural promotion policy
The purpose of this evaluation is to evaluate the EU agricultural promotion policy. The consultation activities under this evaluation are meant to provide indications on how the set of policy instruments introduced by the reformed CAP (2014) is performing against its stated objectives, to provide answers on issues raised in the public domain and provide a solid evidence basis for the evaluation's conclusions.
Fit for Future Platform (F4F)
The Fit for Future Platform is a high-level expert group that will help the Commission in its efforts to simplify EU laws and to reduce related unnecessary costs.
These efforts are part of the REFIT programme.
F4F will examine whether existing laws can achieve their objectives efficiently as we tackle new challenges such as digitalisation. The Commission will take into account the Platform’s opinions to ensure EU laws help, not hinder, people and business, in particular small and medium-sized enterprises.
