Policy change can have major impacts on the agri-food and bioenergy sectors, as well as on the overall macro economy.  In the EU, policy makers must address the direct impact of Brexit as well as the shape of the Common Agricultural Policy post-2020.  This will be impacted by the post-2020 EU budget agreement as the EU loses its second largest net contributor.  In the US, the election of the Trump administration may also have major implications.  The policy uncertainty in the EU and the US is also likely to have implications at the global level.

A host of policy issues – both directly and indirectly impacting agriculture – are being discussed around the world.  These involve trade agreements, environmental regulations, climate change and renewable fuels/bioenergy, approach to GMOs.

There is considerable uncertainty about what the new agri-food and bioenergy policies might look like and what they may mean for businesses operating along the value chain.  Are you prepared for these changes and how they will impact your business?
