State Aid: Consultation on continuing State aid rules in agriculture, fishery, forestry and aquaculture sectors
A consultation has been opened by the European Commission in the view of a draft regulation, to extend the validity of the existing State aid rules in the sectors of agriculture, fishery, forestry and aquaculture by one more year. The envisaged new rules will be shaped by the CAP and CFP reforms, which are still in process, thus the need for this extension.
The existing rules, which will expire in December 2020, are on:
- applicable Block Exemption Regulations
- regulation on de minimis aid for fishery and aquaculture.
