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.

As the “trilogue” on the European financial framework for 2014-2020 has started its work, it is important that the Commission, the Council and the European Parliament achieve a realistic and constructive agreement, that is today urgently needed in Europe.

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.
