Attention given in Poland to the problems of agriculture is greater than its economic significance. The Polish society is seriously concerned over agriculture's destiny in the European Union. Some of the fears felt by Polish citizens have been dispelled owing to an information campaign carried out prior to the national referendum on Poland's accession to EU and the results of negotiations conducted in Copenhagen. The positive outcome of the referendum can be largely attributed to the Polish society's confidence in the principles of the Common Agricultural Policy and, especially, the guarantees of financial support for agriculture and its non-production functions.
