A new vision for agriculture
momagri, movement for a world agricultural organization, is a think tank chaired by Pierre Pagesse.
It brings together, managers from the agricultural world and important people from external perspectives,
such as health, development, strategy and defense. Its objective is to promote regulation
of agricultural markets by creating new evaluation tools, such as economic models and indicators,
and by drawing up proposals for an agricultural and international food policy.
Point of view

Which type of European agriculture for the 21st century?



by momagri’s Editorial Board



Such is the topic of the talk that Jacques Carles, Executive Vice President of momagri, will give at the next conference in the “Economic, Social and Environmental Issues” series organized by the Maison de l’Europe. The discussion will also include:

    • Rares-Lucian Niculescu, MEP (Group of the European People’s Party) and Member of the Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development (AGRI) at the European Parliament;
    • Stéphane Le Foll, MEP (Group of Socialists and Democrats) and Member of the Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development (AGRI) at the European Parliament;
    • William Villeneuve, President of the French Union of Young Farmers;
    • And Pierre Bascou, Head of the Agriculture Policy Analysis and Perspective Unit at the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Agriculture and Rural Development.
As a key component of European civilization, agriculture involves all citizens. On the strength of such observation, the conference will strive to answer the following questions. In agriculture, which comprehensive position the Europeans must adopt in a globalized world? As negotiations for the 2013-2020 European Union budget and the groundwork for the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) reorganization are being initiated, which are the key features of possible reforms to meet the food, social, environmental and energy challenges? Which are the agricultural issues facing new Member-States? Which content the European Commission and the new Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development, Dacian Ciolos, will give to the CAP? How must the EU factor in the deteriorating global food situation?

The conference will be held on Wednesday, January 13, 2010 between 6:30PM and 8:30PM at the Maison de l’Europe, 35-37 rue des Francs-Bourgeois, Paris 75004 (Subway: Saint-Paul on #1 line).
