The review of the European Union (EU) budget and the Common Agricultural Policy reform are tightly connected issues influencing each other.

These functions are key in understanding substitutability or complementarity between agricultural and other expenditures and shed some light on the positions of the MSs in favour or against possible reform proposals.
