The future of EU finances: have your say on the EU budget after 2020.
All EU citizens are invited to say where they think the EU has the most value added and where it should focus its investment to maximise the impact of each euro invested. The public consultations are open until 8 March 2018.
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.
