Financial Programming and Budget

Financial Programming and Budget

Entrusted with the budgetary portfolio I am fully aware that managing public money is a serious responsibility. I am here to ensure the sound financial management of the EU funds, stemming from the European taxpayers, in liaison with the budgetary authorities and 27 member states.

I shall strive to make an impact of the EU budget visible to the people across Europe. Its value added is best demonstrated via contributions to the well-being, security, healthy environment, innovation, territorial cohesion as well as to the global ambitions of our “old” continent.

I am also expected to develop the new, innovative concepts, shaping post-2013 future of the European finances.
