On Monday 13 July, 15:45 - 16:15, ECON Members discussed the draft opinion regarding the EU 2021 budget. The process of the preparation of the EU 2021 budget depends to a large extent on the progress in the negotiations regarding the Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF). The opinion focuses, amongst other things, on budget related measures to fight the economic consequences of the COVID-19 crisis, and measures related to the EU Commission's Green Deal initiative.
