Question for written answer E-006904-17
to the Commission
Rule 130
Edouard Ferrand (ENF)

 Subject:  Financial allocations for Turkey for 2018-2020
 Answer in writing 

The Commissioner responsible for neighbourhood policy and enlargement negotiations, Johannes Hahn, is to present a series of options on the adaptation of the financial allocations for Turkey for 2018-2020 to the General Affairs Council (GAC) on 12 December 2017.

The European Council of 21 October 2017 had already called for a review of the funds (EUROPE 11888).

For its part, the Commission has pointed out that ‘in line with the Presidency conclusions of the GAC in December 2016, the Commission is already focusing ongoing pre-accession funding on key areas such as the rule of law, fundamental rights, civil society and people-to-people contacts, which will be preserved in future assistance programmes’.

Can the Commission say to whom exactly the funds corresponding to the financial allocations for Turkey for 2018-2020 will be paid?

Is the Commission planning a control mechanism for the spending concerned?

More specifically, how will the expected improvements in fields such as the rule of law and fundamental rights be assessed?
