Seminar paper from the year 2003 in the subject Business economics - Economic Policy, grade: 7.9 / 10, University of Applied Sciences Groningen (Economics), course: European Buisness Enviroment, 5 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: This report will describes the influence of the enlargement of the EU on the Common
Agricultural Policy ( CAP ).
I have chosen this topic, because it is most important, due to the huge influence of the
CAP on the EU`S financial budget. Also the future for the CAP is very uncertain and
this will have a large impact on the European farmers.
For the successful completion of this work I had to understand why there is an CAP
and how it works, so that I could think about the future of it.
First I gave a short look on history, this is very important to understand the CAP.
I considered that having a short look on how the CAP works would be a very
important step to analyse the impact of the Enlargement.
After having analyzed how the CAP works I had an closer look on the costs of the
CAP and discussed the advantages and disadvantages.
Then I am giving some facts and figures about the wheat industry and in conclusion
to that I had a closer look on eastern Europe on the example of Poland.
Furthermore I analyzed the impact of the enlargement on the Wheat industry
The last part of the report is a short conclusion about this topic.
