Speaking at the Washington International Trade Association on the issue of CAP reform and Cancun on July 28th 2003 Agriculture Commissioner Franz Fischler noted that the forthcoming reforms of the sugar, cotton, olive oil and tobacco sectors would follow to different extents the same path as previous CAP reforms. Comment: This implies a European Commission pre-disposition towards price reductions and the introduction of compensatory payments in the sugar sector. This will lead to significant income losses for ACP sugar exporters and will reduce the value of sugar-sector trade preferences being extended to ACP least developed countries.
