EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT-NEWS: EU budget debate ahead of crucial summit

European Parliament- News issued the following announcement on Feb. 11.

Ahead of the EU budget summit on 20 February, MEPs will discuss EU priorities for the next financial framework with Council and Commission on Wednesday from 9:00.

MEPs will reiterate their call for an ambitious Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) for 2021-2027 that ensures that priority areas like climate action, research, digitalisation, support for young people (Erasmus+, youth employment) and for SMEs receive adequate funding, without jeopardising the continuity of support for rural communities, farmers and poorer regions. Budgetary means to deal with the aftermath of the financial crisis, migration and security issues also need to be guaranteed.

EU heads of state or government will discuss the EU’s long-term budget for 2021-2027 during a special meeting of the European Council on 20 February 2020. They still have not agreed on a common position to serve as a mandate to start negotiations with Parliament, which adopted its position in November 2018, following the Commission’s proposal in May 2018. The Parliament has to give its consent to the next MFF.

Check the MFF Q&A and a structured list with the most important links for complete and up-to-date information.

EP President David Sassoli will hold a press conference on the MFF on Wednesday at 13:00.

A press conference by EP rapporteurs involved in MFF-related negotiations with the Council on Erasmus, Creative Europe and the European Solidarity Corps is scheduled for Wednesday, at 15:00.
