[holding answer 22 May 2000]: Since the adoption by the European Union of the Agenda 2000 CAP reforms I have met Ministers from Australia, New Zealand and the USA. They were generally supportive of the direction of CAP reform achieved in Agenda 2000 but would have preferred it to have gone further.
