On 21-22 October 2002 representatives of 25 farmers’ organisations from Africa, Europe and Canada met in Brussels to compare their positions in the light of international pressure for ever greater liberalisation of trade in agricultural products.
Discussions focused particularly on the dangers of a radical conception of market access for agricultural products - i.e. the consequences for prices and on the future of family farming. The organisations identified many points of convergence in their analyses and in the legitimate interests they defend.
