In brief: Minister has first Ciolos meeting

Agriculture Minister Brendan Smith met with Agriculture Commissioner Dacian Ciolos for the first time in Brussels yesterday.

Describing the meeting as a "very useful opportunity", Minister Smith said he stressed the importance of a robust and fully funded CAP post-2013 and his commitment to decoupled payments. He also raised the issue of market management measures which, he said, had proven to be essential in addressing price volatility.
