In the latter part of the 1990s, the EU was planning an enlargement to include several former communist states from Central and Eastern Europe and preparing itself for a new round of international trade negotiations (expected to be launched as the Millennium Round). Public confidence in the food system had been shaken by BSE in cattle, rural development and environmental concerns had become more important, and the Santer Commission was forced to resign. The Agenda 2000 package included proposals on CAP reform, a new Financial Framework for 2000–6, and enlargement. It was agreed by the European Council in Berlin in March 1999. The CAP reform built upon the 1992 reforms, and created the second pillar of the CAP, but budgetary considerations led to a considerable weakening of the package compared to the Commission's proposal.
