Bilateral and multilateral meetings will focus on the reform of Europe's Common Agriculture Policy, Martynas Žilionis, spokesman for the Lithuanian agriculture minister, said.

"Representatives of EU institutions and member states will continue discussions on agriculture funding after the United Kingdom leaves the Community, and Lithuania wants the existing level of funding not to be reduced in the future," he told BNS Lithuania.
