EU cooperation with Greenland

11-04-2019

The overall aim of the European Union-Greenland Partnership Agreement is to boost ties and cooperation between the EU and Greenland, with education and training as one of several key areas of cooperation. As part of the partnership, and taking Greenland's needs into account, the focal point of EU-Greenland financial cooperation is education and training, with a special emphasis on boosting the pre-school and elementary school system, as well as on providing support for vocational education and post-elementary ...

How the EU budget is spent: European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI)

03-04-2019

Created after the start of the current multiannual financial framework (MFF), the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI) aims to trigger additional investment worth €500 billion in crucial sectors of the EU's economy that suffer from market failures and sub-optimal investment situations. Another major objective is to improve access to finance for European companies, with a special focus on smaller businesses.

Created after the start of the current multiannual financial framework (MFF), the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI) aims to trigger additional investment worth €500 billion in crucial sectors of the EU's economy that suffer from market failures and sub-optimal investment situations. Another major objective is to improve access to finance for European companies, with a special focus on smaller businesses. The functioning of EFSI relies on a strategic partnership with the European Investment Bank Group, which can approve and finance investment operations with a higher-risk profile than its usual portfolio, thanks to the guarantee provided by the EU budget under EFSI. For the post-2020 period, the European Commission has proposed an InvestEU Fund that should build on EFSI's results.

Economic and Budgetary Outlook for the European Union 2019

30-01-2019

This EPRS study, the third in an annual series, provides an overview of the economic and budgetary situation in the EU and beyond. It summarises the main economic indicators in the Union and euro area, and their two-year trends. The figures show that growth was moderate in 2018, at 2.1 %, although this is expected to deteriorate slightly in the coming months, given the poorer global outlook than a year ago. That said, unemployment is at a post-crisis low, and is expected to improve further, given ...

This EPRS study, the third in an annual series, provides an overview of the economic and budgetary situation in the EU and beyond. It summarises the main economic indicators in the Union and euro area, and their two-year trends. The figures show that growth was moderate in 2018, at 2.1 %, although this is expected to deteriorate slightly in the coming months, given the poorer global outlook than a year ago. That said, unemployment is at a post-crisis low, and is expected to improve further, given positive labour market conditions. The study explains the annual EU budget, providing an overview of its headings for 2019, with the total amounting to €165.8 billion (or around 1 % of EU gross national income). The budget focuses on priorities that include stimulating investment, growth and research, the creation of new jobs – especially for young people – and addressing migration and security challenges. The wider budgetary framework – the multiannual financial framework (MFF) – is also analysed in the study, with key decisions on spending for the 2021-2027 period due to be taken during 2019. In this year's edition, the special 'economic focus' offers a bird's eye view of SMEs and SME policy in Europe, and of various recent EU-level initiatives in this field. The EU budget devotes particular attention to SMEs, given their central role in the European economy and in job creation. The EU needs to continue devoting efforts to improving European SMEs' access to finance, since despite recent improvements, they are still too heavily reliant on debt financing which puts them at risk in a downturn.

Own resources of the European Union: Reforming the EU's financing system

09-11-2018

The EU budget is financed by the system of own resources and cannot run a deficit. The current system provides sufficient revenue to cover EU expenditure, but has often been criticised as opaque and unfair. The European Parliament, which has little say in the design of the system, has long pushed for its reform, with a view to shifting the focus of budgetary negotiations from geographically pre-allocated expenditure to the policies with the highest European added value. The European Commission is ...

The EU budget is financed by the system of own resources and cannot run a deficit. The current system provides sufficient revenue to cover EU expenditure, but has often been criticised as opaque and unfair. The European Parliament, which has little say in the design of the system, has long pushed for its reform, with a view to shifting the focus of budgetary negotiations from geographically pre-allocated expenditure to the policies with the highest European added value. The European Commission is proposing to modify the financing of the EU budget as of 2021, when the next multiannual financial framework should start. Proposed changes include: the simplification of existing own resources; the introduction of three new own resources linked to EU policies on climate, environment and the single market; the reduction of the share of revenue provided by the GNI-based resource, which is perceived as national contributions; the abolition of the UK rebate (following that country’s withdrawal from the EU); and the phasing-out of corrections currently granted to other five Member States. A special legislative procedure applies to the principal decision, requiring unanimity in the Council. This is considered a major obstacle to reform of the system, which has remained substantially unchanged for 30 years. First edition. The 'EU Legislation in Progress' briefings are updated at key stages throughout the legislative procedure.

Smart Borders: EU Entry/Exit System

12-01-2018

In anticipation of increased traveller flows and in response to security concerns regarding the control of EU external borders, on 6 April 2016, the Commission presented revised proposals for establishing an Entry/Exit System for recording the border-crossings of all non-EU nationals. These build on the Smart Borders package presented in 2013, which did not secure consensus among the co-legislators and was the subject of additional technical and operational studies completed in 2015.

In anticipation of increased traveller flows and in response to security concerns regarding the control of EU external borders, on 6 April 2016, the Commission presented revised proposals for establishing an Entry/Exit System for recording the border-crossings of all non-EU nationals. These build on the Smart Borders package presented in 2013, which did not secure consensus among the co-legislators and was the subject of additional technical and operational studies completed in 2015. The current system of manual stamping of passports would be replaced by automation of certain preparatory border control procedures. The system would be interconnected with the Visa Information System (VIS) database and used by the same authorities: border control and consular posts. Moreover, it would allow law enforcement authorities to perform restricted queries in the database for criminal identification and intelligence to prevent serious crime and terrorism. The two regulations were signed on 30 November 2017, and the Entry/Exit System is due to become fully functional by 2020 at the latest.

Perspectives économiques et budgétaires de l’Union européenne pour 2018

11-01-2018

La présente étude fournit une vue d’ensemble des perspectives économiques et budgétaires de l’Union européenne en 2018 et au-delà. Les principaux indicateurs économiques de l’Union et de la zone euro y sont résumés, ainsi que leurs tendances sur deux ans. Les prévisions économiques annoncent une croissance robuste, qui ralentira à l’avenir, et une baisse du chômage.

La présente étude fournit une vue d’ensemble des perspectives économiques et budgétaires de l’Union européenne en 2018 et au-delà. Les principaux indicateurs économiques de l’Union et de la zone euro y sont résumés, ainsi que leurs tendances sur deux ans. Les prévisions économiques annoncent une croissance robuste, qui ralentira à l’avenir, et une baisse du chômage. Les risques sont globalement équilibrés mais des défis intérieurs et extérieurs susceptibles d’affaiblir la reprise économique demeurent. Enfin, un point spécial sur l’économie s’attache à présenter un panorama de l’industrie et des politiques industrielles en Europe et à donner un aperçu des initiatives récentes en la matière à l’échelle de l’Union. Affichant une croissance en matière de valeur ajoutée, de production et d’emploi, l’industrie, secteur particulièrement important pour la croissance et qui est à l’origine d’un emploi sur cinq dans l’Union, se trouve sur une trajectoire positive. Le budget annuel de l’Union, accompagné d’un aperçu de ses principales rubriques pour 2018, ainsi que le cadre budgétaire général, le cadre financier pluriannuel (CFP), couvrant actuellement la période 2014-2020 sont également présentés dans la présente étude. Le budget de l’Union pour 2018, qui s’élève à 160,1 milliards d’EUR, met l’accent sur des priorités telles que la promotion de la croissance durable, la création d’emplois, en particulier pour les jeunes, la migration et les questions de sécurité. Bien qu’il ne représente qu’environ 1 % du revenu national brut de l’Union, ses caractéristiques, telles que la part substantielle des ressources consacrée à l’investissement, amplifient l’incidence globale de ce budget. Le débat sur l’avenir du budget de l’Union, qui a pris de l’ampleur en 2017, devrait déboucher sur des propositions pour un CFP pour l’après-2020 et sur une réforme du système de financement de l’Union, propositions qui devraient être déposées par la Commission européenne en mai 2018.

2014-2020 Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF): Mid-term revision

07-07-2017

The Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) sets the maximum level of resources (‘ceiling’) for each major category of EU spending for the years 2014-2020. Based on the compulsory mid-term review of the MFF, the European Commission proposes to modify the flexibility provisions and special instruments of the MFF Regulation. The aim is to increase the capacity of the EU budget to address unforeseen events and new priorities, against a backdrop of persistent challenges inside and outside the EU. The proposal ...

The Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) sets the maximum level of resources (‘ceiling’) for each major category of EU spending for the years 2014-2020. Based on the compulsory mid-term review of the MFF, the European Commission proposes to modify the flexibility provisions and special instruments of the MFF Regulation. The aim is to increase the capacity of the EU budget to address unforeseen events and new priorities, against a backdrop of persistent challenges inside and outside the EU. The proposal is part of a broader package that seeks to allocate an extra €6.33 billion to job creation, growth, migration and security challenges, without modifying the MFF ceilings. On 5 April 2017, the Parliament, which has long pushed for MFF revision, approved the compromise package supported in the Council on a text that enhances some special instruments. Following formal adoption in the Council, the mid-term revision enters into force on 14 July 2017. Please note this document has been designed for on-line viewing.
