Summary: The accession of the ten new member states to the European Union has increased the agricultural surface in the EU by 29%, the agricultural population by 52% and the agricultural gross national product by only 7%. These three figures indicate three different problems: low productivity, big financial cost for the EU and great social and political sensitivity. For the Central and Eastern European states, accession to the European Union also means the disappearance of the last tariff barriers for the imports of agricultural products from the original 15 EU member states, as well as the introduction of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). This study examines the agricultural sectors of the new member states, possible consequences for the CAP and perspectives for the agriculture in these countries.
