Negotiations for the EU budget: the agreement will wait until 2020

Posted on

Whether only three of them meeting in an informal way or all gathered in the Council of the EU, the majority of the agriculture ministers of the Member States continue to plead for the maintenance of the budget of the CAP in the future Multiannual Financial Framework. On the side of the European Parliament, the new legislature confirmed the position of the previous one for a strong contribution of the Member States to the Community budget. The Commission has noted the impossibility of an agreement on the MFF by the end of the year.
