First trilogue on MFF 2014-2020
A first trilogue (meeting of the European Parliament, Council and European Commission) on the 2014-2020 multiannual financial framework was held yesterday.
Following up on last week’s agreement between the Irish Presidency, the President of the European Parliament and the President of the European Commission, delegates agreed that the negotiations would focus mainly on future flexibility of the EU budget,
a revision clause, the future of the EU budget’s own resources and the unity of the EU budget.
The next trilogue is scheduled for 28 May.
