MFF post 2020

"An important element will be the budgetary plans the Commission will present in May 2018. Here again we have a choice: either we pursue the European Union's ambitions in the strict framework of the existing budget, or we increase the European Union's budgetary capacity so that it might better reach its ambitions. I am for the second option."

Jean-Claude Juncker
President of the European Commission
State of the Union Speech 2017

Debate on political priorities

Ahead of the Informal Leaders' meeting on 23 February 2018, the European Commission presented various options – and their financial consequences – for a new and modern, long-term EU budget that delivers efficiently on its priorities after 2020.

Quote Commissioner Oettinger

Where should the money go?

To engage on a broader reform of the Union and to steer this reform, President Juncker has proposed in his State of the Union Address of 13 September 2017 a Roadmap for a More United, Stronger and More Democratic Union. The Reflection paper on the future of EU finances published in June 2017 sets out possible paths for the future EU budget. The proposal for the new Multiannual financial framework post 2020 will be a next step in this process. It will be accompanied by a set of legislative proposals defining future EU spending programmes. In line with the Better regulation principles the lessons learned from evaluations of predecessor programmes will be taken into account. Moreover, stakeholders will be able to express their views through a range of different consultation activities including open public consultation.

Stakeholder consultations

The Commission is committed to listen more closely to citizens and stakeholders, as part of the Commission’s Better Regulation Agenda. In this section of the website, you can find out about open public consultations for the preparation of the future sectorial legislation that will accompany the proposal for the Multiannual financial framework post 2020. As a citizen, you have the possibility to express your views right from the start of the Commission's work by providing answers to the open public consultation questionnaires listed below per policy area and available in all EU languages.
