Lithuania to be critical of EU's Common Agriculture Policy

Lithuania will express its critical position on reduction of structural funds for the Baltic States and Hungary, and on the Common Agriculture Policy during the EU Foreign Affairs Council meeting, Lithuanian Prime Minister Andrius Kubilius has said.

"We have a clearly critical position on several matters. First of all, on a currently proposed cohesion funds formula which is unfavourable to the Baltic States and Hungary. Lithuania would lose about a billion euros if such a formula is applied," Kubilius said to journalists on Wednesday, after the government's meeting, reports LETA/ELTA.

The prime minister has also said that all Central European countries will stick to a critical position while assessing the Common Agriculture Policy.

Lithuania is seeking higher structural support in 2014-2020 because it has been cut by 14 percent, which makes over 1 billion litas (EUR 0.29 billion).

"Together with the Baltic States, we are critical of future structural support funds to be allocated to us, because, according to such an odd formula, structural funds are to increase quite significantly to the entire central Europe after 2014, while for the three Baltic states and Hungary, it is to decrease considerably," Kubilius had said on 1 March.
