Mid-term revision of the 2014-2020 Multiannual Financial Framework

At a Glance 29-03-2017

Agreed in 2013, the current Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) sets the structure of EU spending until 2020. Based on the mid-term review of the MFF, the Commission proposal to revise the MFF Regulation aims at enhancing the EU's budgetary capacity to address new priorities and unexpected events. Parliament, which has long pushed for MFF revision, is expected to decide during April I plenary whether to approve or reject the compromise reached by the Council in March 2017.
