EU budget: the path to an agreement
As the “trilogue” on the European financial framework for 2014-2020 has started its work, it is important it achieves a realistic and constructive agreement: this is the objective of this Viewpoint signed Jacques Delors and António Vitorino.
This is the objective of this Viewpoint signed Jacques Delors et António Vitorino, which contains three main ideas:
1. The European Council meeting in February 2013 made it impossible to send out positive political signals;
2. The European Parliament’s resolution contains several welcome demands;
3. A final agreement must be thrashed out on a realistic and constructive basis.
