28-06-2018

Draft Amending Budget No 3/2018 (DAB 3/2018) proposes to add €500 million in commitment appropriations to the 2018 budget as the EU contribution to the second tranche of the Facility for Refugees in Turkey (FRT). The funding is needed, inter alia, to continue paying the salaries of over 5 000 teachers providing education to more than 300 000 refugee children in Turkey. During the July plenary session, the European Parliament is expected to vote on the Council position on DAB 3/2018. Although with some hesitation, the European Parliament's Committee on Budgets recommends the adoption of DAB 3/2018.
