MFF; Time to meet citizens' expectations: extracts from the debate
Event date: 10/10/2019
During the plenary session (9-10 October 2019) of the European Parlliament in Brussels, MEPs debate and vote on a resolution on the EU long-term budget for 2021-2027 and the reform of the EU’s own budgetary resources. In the draft resolution, MEPs say they want the new MFF to go beyond what was previously planned on climate action, to reflect the European Green Deal promised by Commission President-elect von der Leyen. Statement by Tytti TUPPURAINEN, Finnish Minister for European Affairs, Johannes HAHN, Commissioner-designate for Budget and Administration, Margarida MARQUES (S&D, PT), David CORMAND (Greens/EFA, FR) and Bogdan RZOŃCA (ECR, PL).
