Argentina keeps up pressure for CAP changes

ARGENTINA is continuing to press hard for changes to the European Unions (EU) common agricultural policy, said Sir Leon Brittan, EU trade commissioner.

Argentina wants greater access to European markets for its agricultural exports.

The EU hopes to secure Latin American backing for a Millennium Round of tradeliberalisation negotiations, according to Sir Leon. The talks would tackle remaining industrial tariffs and investment and competition issues.
