Agrarian Policy 2007 – The further development of agrarian policy

On 29 May 2002 the Federal Council approved the motion for further developing agrarian policy (Agrarian Policy 2007). This motion includes changes to six fe-deral laws and one federal decision concerning funding for agriculture for the period 2004-2007. The key elements are the abolishment of milk quotas, the sale of meat import quotas to the highest bidder and the new 4-year budget, which are all due to come into force on 1 January 2004.
