Answer given by Mr Avramopoulos on behalf of the Commission
Question reference: E-002227/2018

In 2016, the Commission has made available to Italy a total amount of EUR 87 million under the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF), including emergency assistance (EMAS). Hence, the EU contribution under AMIF corresponds to roughly 5.1%(1) of the total amount of costs incurred by Italy in 2016 for the initial reception of asylum-seekers. In addition, during the same financial year EUR 83.7 million were allocated to Italy under the Internal Security Fund (ISF) — Borders and Visa instrument, including emergency assistance.

The total allocation to Italy under the General Programme ‘Solidarity and Management of Migration Flows’ for the period 2007-2013, including the emergency assistance, amounted to EUR 538 million. For the period 2014-2020 the total allocation to Italy under AMIF and ISF (Borders and Visa instrument) is EUR 589 million under national programmes plus EUR 190 million granted so far for emergency assistance.

The EMAS support includes EUR 39.9 million under ISF, recently granted in the framework of the action plan(2) on measures to support Italy reduce pressure along the Central Mediterranean Route and increase solidarity. Out of all EU Member States and Schengen associated countries, Italy is the second highest beneficiary of AMIF and ISF national programmes funding and emergency assistance combined, after Greece.

The Commission continues to support Italy with additional emergency assistance funding. Up to EUR 100 million will be mobilised under AMIF for measures necessary to accelerate the asylum and return processing, to assist Italian local authorities and communities hosting and supporting migrants.

For the next long-term EU budget 2021-2027, the Commission proposes to almost triple funding for migration and border management to EUR 34.9 billion, as compared to EUR 13 billion in the current 2014-2020 period(3).

(1)5.1% = EUR 87 million/EUR 1.7 billion.
(2)SEC(2017) 339.
(3)COM(2018) 471 final.
