During the 2004 – 2006 period after Poland’s accession to the European Union, Poland received about EUR 20 billion for the implementation of various Community policies. Analyses of potential benefits and losses related to integration process emphasised that the Common Agricultural Policy ensures long-term, sustainable conditions for producers. According to many views, recently after five years of membership more than 70% farmers accept EU membership. .
