Parliament’s reading of the EU 2021 budget

05-11-2020

During the November I plenary session, the European Parliament is due to decide on amendments to the Council’s position on the draft EU budget for 2021. The Parliament is preparing its reading in the extraordinary situation of a lack of agreement on the forthcoming multiannual financial framework (MFF) for 2021-2027 and in the context of the far-reaching consequences of the coronavirus crisis. The report of the Committee on Budgets reverses many of the reductions proposed by the Council. Furthermore, it proposes a considerable increase in the contributions of the 2021 budget to Parliament priorities, in particular the 15 EU flagship programmes, in line with the ongoing MFF negotiations.
