EU agriculture policy still hurting farmers in developing countries

Proposals for reform of the EU common agricultural policy (CAP) will do little to reduce huge subsidies that hurt farmers in developing countries, according to trade campaigners.

The European commission is set to announce proposals on farm subsidies this week, but leaked documents show that in real terms the CAP budget is set to rise from €330bn in 2000-07 to €371bn for 2007-13.
