EU budget


The European Commission has set out options - and their financial consequences - for a new, modern, long-term EU budget in order to deliver efficiently on the priorities for Europeans beyond 2020. When discussing about the level of ambition of EU action in areas - like protecting the EU's external borders, supporting a true European Defence Union, boosting Europe's digital transformation or making the EU's cohesion and agricultural policies more efficient - it is important to be aware of what different choices would mean concretely in terms of funding at EU level.

The Communication and factsheets below achieve exactly this – they quantify the financial impact of various possible policy choices. They also set out the negative consequences for citizens and businesses if the adoption of the new EU budget were to be delayed.
