Commissioner Hogan in Ireland to discuss the future Common Agricultural Policy

Commissioner for Agriculture Phil Hogan is in Dublin today where he participates in two citizens' dialogues.

The first one, taking place earlier this morning, focused on the future Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) and the EU's place in global trade. He was joined on stage at this occasion by David Taylor, New Zealand Ambassador to the European Union. Together with European Parliament Vice-president Mairead McGuinness, Commissioner Hogan afterwards participates in a second citizens' dialogue reflecting on women farmers and female entrepreneurs in rural Ireland. Two other speakers complete the programme: Siobhán Lawless, Founder and CEO of Foods of Athenry and Norma Dinneen, Founder and CEO of Bó Rua Farm. This event will start at 12h local time.  The number of women in farming has been slowly increasing in recent years. The most recent data suggests that, on average, around 30% of farms across the EU are managed by a woman. Not only does the EU support new farmers through its usual income support system, it can also provide rural development funds to help young women get started in farming. More information is online.
