Parliament's guidelines for the 2021 EU budget: Section III – European Commission

11-06-2020

The 2021 EU budget should be the first one under the new Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) for 2021 to 2027. The European Parliament contributes to the preparation of proposals for the forthcoming year's budget for the European Union through the adoption of its 'guidelines'. The draft guidelines, as adopted by the Committee on Budgets, outline the Parliament's priorities for the Union's 2021 budget: mitigating the effects of the Covid 19 outbreak and supporting the recovery, built on the European Green Deal and digital transformation. Parliament is expected to adopt its guidelines during the June plenary session, ahead of the Commission's adoption of its proposal for the draft 2021 budget, scheduled for 24 June 2020.
