The Economic and Social Council (ESC) presented the position of organised civil society in Bulgaria on the subject of the future Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) of the European Union after 2013 which was formulated in ESC's Resolution adopted on 28 June 2011. In this document ESC expressed its overall support for the proposals of the European Commission (EC) to reform the CAP in the context of the Europe 2020 Strategy and the current challenges faced by the policy which affect not only farmers but all citizens of the European Union (EU).

The main argument of the ESC is that a sustainable, productive and competitive agricultural sector will be a valuable contribution to the implementation of the Europe 2020 Strategy given the potential for growth and employment in rural areas and providing conditions for fair competition.
