Effects of CEEC-EU accession on agricultural markets in the CEEC and on government expenditure.

This chapter focuses on market and budgetary effects of different variants of the EU's Agenda 2000 for the five Central and Eastern European Countries in the first wave of accession negotiations, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Poland and Slovenia. The development of CEEC agricultural protection when adopting the CAP is briefly described and a summary of market reaction for four different scenarios. Scenario 1 assumes that the CEEC-5 are integrated into the EU, though without implementing the CAP. In the second scenario, the CEEC-5 are assumed to be integrated into the CAP and the Single Market for agricultural products in a manner similar to the accession of Austria, Finland and Sweden. Scenario 3 assumes that the CEEC-5 will become eligible for direct payments for dairy and beef cattle as well as for arable crops. The final scenario assumes normal technical progress, but varies the assumption on export subsidies for cereals.
