  • to make recommendations to the Welsh Government on what it should prioritise in its negotiations on the reform process;
  • to act as a forum for stakeholders in Wales to engage with the debate on the future of the policy;
  • to influence the wider debate on CFP Reform, the Task and Finish Group will seek to share its conclusions with UK parliamentary bodies, the European Commission and the European Parliament and with other relevant European bodies such as the Committee of the Regions.
