The ECDPM will conduct analyses, facilitate the debate and closely monitor the negotiations until the final agreement on the new budget. We will focus on the impact on foreign policy, development cooperation and relations between Africa and Europe. The global and European political environment has changed considerably in recent years, which will have an impact on agreed amounts and on the emphasis on the EU`s global role. EU heads of state and government have asked European Council President Charles Michel to move the negotiations forward towards a final agreement. European Council: political agreement on the multi-year financial framework 2014-2020 – 2020 – 2021-2027 and on the decision on own resources The agreement provides for the protection of financial interests in accordance with the general principles set out in the European Union treaties, including the values set out in Article 2 of the Treaty on the European Union. As far as the MFF is concerned, the common objective is to present to the June European Council a draft framework for close negotiation. This would help to reach agreement on the EU`s long-term budget in the autumn of 2019. After two years of in-depth negotiations on the 2021-2027 multi-year financial framework, the European Council has reached an agreement. In some respects, it could be seen as an ambitious recovery plan for the European Union.
However, significant cuts have been made in section VI: Neighbourhood and The World. On this basis, the European Council will hold an exchange of views in October 2019 with a view to reaching an agreement on the EU`s long-term budget before the end of the year. The European Parliament has won the concession to be associated with the implementation of the next generation EU package (NGEU), a positive step towards democratic accountability for the instrument. The CPMR congratulates Parliament and the Council on the agreement reached. On 10 November 2020, the European Parliament and EU Member States reached a historic agreement in the Council on the next long-term budget and nextGenerationEU, the temporary recovery instrument. The agreement provides for strengthening the financial envelopes of programmes with European added value such as Horizon Europe and Erasmus, which sends a strong signal, including for future budget negotiations. However, the CPMR regrets that the list of programmes with additional resources has decreased compared to the initial demands of the European Parliament, in the absence of the Fair Transition Fund (JTF) and the Interconnection Mechanism in Europe, which cover the two priority areas of the EU and have a strong territorial dimension. Such an outcome will make it more difficult for the EU to achieve its ambitions, particularly with regard to climate change and energy transition, due to the JTF`s reductions. In its June 2019 conclusions, the European Council called on the Presidency to develop the MFF negotiating box. On this basis, EU heads of state and government will exchange views in October to reach an agreement by the end of the year. The agreement paves the way for negotiations with the European Parliament on the proposal.
It`s a good deal. It`s a very strong case. And above all, it is the right deal for Europe right now. This agreement sends a concrete signal that the EU is a power of action.
