Agricultural Policy Forum

Agricultural Policy Forum (APF) is a two-day event on regional agricultural policy in SEE organized by SWG, involving relevant regional and international stakeholders, resulting in regional policy recommendations. The Agricultural Policy Forum (APF) was established in 2001 in order to facilitate policy decision making in South Eastern Europe. Subsequently the Agricultural Policy Forum has been annually held in the countries of South Eastern Europe (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, North Macedonia, Montenegro, Kosovo*, Romania, Serbia), together with three forums held in Leipzig and Dresden, Germany.

The Focus of all Agricultural Policy Forums is the agricultural and rural development of SEE countries in the process of EU integration. The main achievement based on the establishment of the APF as a platform for dialogue and regional cooperation was the formation of the regional initiative, the Regional Rural Development Standing Working Group (SWG) in SEE.
