Agriculture and new private policies

Price fluctuations, climate risk (apart from climate change), health crises, and the like, also require new private policies, especially those facilitating better risk management and enhanced competition, from farm to consumer.

Session 7. Agriculture and Risk Management

There are many instruments that can be used to manage risk. What is the appropriate division of labor between public and private sectors? International trade has always been an important means of spreading risk. How can trade be fostered in order to better play this insurance role? What are the other aspects of international cooperation that need to be considered?

Session 8. Agriculture, Agribusiness and Competition Policy

France is attached to its agricultural “tradition”. But the rest of the French economy has changed, and the agriculture value chain now involves new agents, with a new balance of power. Should we accept increasing divergences in agricultural production structures, as has been happening in other Member States? What are the responsibilities of cooperatives and distributors in the organization of a production system integrated into an increasingly globalized market? What role can competition policy play in future agricultural policies?
