Mobilisation of the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund – Shipbuilding ancillary sectors in Spain

14-10-2020

The European Commission has proposed to mobilise €2 054 400 under the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF) to address redundancies in the ancillary sectors linked to shipbuilding in Galicia (Spain), resulting from the financial difficulties of two shipyards in the region. The European Parliament’s Committee on Budgets backs the proposal and reiterates that assistance from the EGF must not replace actions which are the responsibility of companies, by virtue of national law or collective agreements ...

CAP strategic plans

14-10-2020

The European Commission adopted three legislative proposals on the future of the common agricultural policy (CAP) on 1 June 2018. One of the three proposals includes a regulation on CAP strategic plans. While the CAP retains its two-pillar structure, (Pillar I, agricultural income and market support, Pillar II rural development), interventions under both will be combined in one strategic plan for all CAP expenditure. Each Member State will be required to develop a strategic plan, setting out their ...

European Maritime and Fisheries Fund 2021-2027

06-10-2020

As part of the next EU budget framework for the 2021-2027 period, the European Commission proposed a new regulation on the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) in order to continue the support to the common fisheries policy and the integrated maritime policy. The new fund would give the Member States more flexibility in the implementation of the priorities. Small-scale coastal fisheries and outermost regions would receive greater preferential treatment.

As part of the next EU budget framework for the 2021-2027 period, the European Commission proposed a new regulation on the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) in order to continue the support to the common fisheries policy and the integrated maritime policy. The new fund would give the Member States more flexibility in the implementation of the priorities. Small-scale coastal fisheries and outermost regions would receive greater preferential treatment. Support for permanent cessation and temporary cessation would be supported under strict conditions. It further proposes increased support for international ocean governance and stronger synergies with other EU policies. The fund is also expected to contribute to the development of the blue economy and support the EU's climate objectives. In reaction to the coronavirus crisis, the Commission published in May 2020 a revised multiannual financial framework proposal, significantly reducing the budget cut for the EMFF as compared to its initial proposal. Both Parliament and Council have agreed positions on the proposal, and trilogue negotiations started in November 2019. An important area of discussion is subsidies to fishing vessels, on which both co-legislators want to go further than the Commission proposal. The next trilogue meeting is scheduled for 29 October 2020. Fourth edition. The 'EU Legislation in Progress' briefings are updated at key stages throughout the legislative procedure

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

06-10-2020

In July 2020, the European Council reached political agreement on the reform of the own resources system that finances the EU budget, in the context of a package including the new multiannual financial framework (MFF) and the Next Generation EU (NGEU) recovery instrument. The agreed increase in the maximum level of resources that can be called from Member States is a pre-condition for NGEU borrowing operations.

In July 2020, the European Council reached political agreement on the reform of the own resources system that finances the EU budget, in the context of a package including the new multiannual financial framework (MFF) and the Next Generation EU (NGEU) recovery instrument. The agreed increase in the maximum level of resources that can be called from Member States is a pre-condition for NGEU borrowing operations. The Council’s adoption of the own resources decision, translating the deal on the revenue side of the EU budget into a legal text, must be preceded by Parliament’s legislative opinion and followed by the ratification of the decision by all Member States. Parliament fast-tracked its legislative opinion, adopted in September 2020, to enable the Council to ensure the timely launch of NGEU. Parliament has repeatedly stressed that it will not give its consent to the MFF without proper reform of the financing system, and negotiations continue on the rest of the package. Notably, Parliament underlines that the introduction of a basket of new own resources should cover at least the repayment costs of NGEU. Deeming the new plastics contribution a first partial step in this direction, Parliament intends to negotiate a legally binding calendar on the introduction of five additional new own resources, linked to EU policies on climate and the single market.

Solvency Support Instrument

06-10-2020

In May 2020, the European Commission adopted a proposal on a Solvency Support Instrument. The aim is to support otherwise viable companies in the Union that face solvency difficulties as a result of the coronavirus crisis, and to mitigate possible distortions to the single market and its level playing field. Such distortions are to be expected given the differing degree to which the Member States are affected and the likely unevenness of their responses, which may depend on their fiscal capacity ...

In May 2020, the European Commission adopted a proposal on a Solvency Support Instrument. The aim is to support otherwise viable companies in the Union that face solvency difficulties as a result of the coronavirus crisis, and to mitigate possible distortions to the single market and its level playing field. Such distortions are to be expected given the differing degree to which the Member States are affected and the likely unevenness of their responses, which may depend on their fiscal capacity and level of debt. The Commission proposes to increase the guarantee provided to the European Investment Bank under the European Fund for Strategic Investments and to use it to support financial intermediaries, which will then select companies eligible for solvency help. At the European Council meeting in July 2020, EU Heads of State or Government did not take up the idea of the solvency support instrument. Both the European Parliament and Commission President, Ursula von der Leyen, have expressed regret at this. Continuing the examination of the proposal in Parliament, the co-rapporteurs have published a draft report in which they propose to widen the scope of eligible companies and ensure fair geographical distribution.

Understanding the financing of intergovernmental organisations: A snapshot of the budgets of the UN, NATO and WTO

23-09-2020

Access to stable and adequate financial resources is a crucial condition for the realisation of the global goals of intergovernmental organisations (IGOs). In recent decades, alongside global political changes and the evolution in the role of multilateral cooperation, the resourcing and budgetary management of IGOs have also changed. Moreover, funding available to IGOs has become ever more diversified and complex both in terms of its origin and type. This briefing presents selected aspects of the ...

Access to stable and adequate financial resources is a crucial condition for the realisation of the global goals of intergovernmental organisations (IGOs). In recent decades, alongside global political changes and the evolution in the role of multilateral cooperation, the resourcing and budgetary management of IGOs have also changed. Moreover, funding available to IGOs has become ever more diversified and complex both in terms of its origin and type. This briefing presents selected aspects of the financing of three of the world's largest IGOs: the United Nations (UN), the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). It presents the size and evolution of their budgets as well as the main contributing countries to these budgets, with a particular focus on the EU Member States. The analysis is based mainly on budgetary data for the financial year 2018.
