Amending EU budget 2013 in line with MFF political agreement

The Commission has adopted the second instalment of its Draft Amending Budget 2 from 27 March 2013, amounting to EUR 3.9 billion after reallocation of available resources within the budget.

The Council (Member States) and the European Parliament have already adopted the first instalment (EUR 7.3 billion) after agreeing to split the original Draft Amending Budget 2 in two in the course of the negotiations on the next financial period (Multiannual Financial Framework, MFF 2014-2020).

This proposal is linked to the adoption of the MFF as the European Parliament has stated that having an absolute guarantee that the outstanding payment claims for 2013 will be covered in full is one of the conditions to give its consent to the MFF regulation covering the next period (2014-2020).
