BRUSSELS – Savings in agriculture and reduced subsidies to richer countries are inevitable as the EU’s new priorities will be able to finance. That warning gave the president of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker at a press conference in Brussels.
The boss of the daily management of the EU ran ahead of the informal EU summit at the end of next week, where the EU leaders talk about the long-term budget after 2020 and the European elections in 2019. Juncker wants more than for the elections is decided on the so-called multiannual financial framework (MFF).
Without Britain, which has promised to pay up to and including 2020, there is a gap of at least 12 billion euros per year. In January, said Juncker that the budget, which now in each case for a period of seven years is established by the EU leaders, up. Some member states see in the departure of the British a good reason for the EU budget to prune.
The netherlands receives an annual landbouwsubsidie for the region of Flevoland. In 2015 was the amount of 2,3 billion euro.
