The financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on member-states severely affected the Commission’s ambitious proposals to increase the EU’s external action budget. But the proposed reform of EU aid is not only about the numbers. If the EU is to be a more efficient and coherent international actor, it needs to improve the management of its external expenditure.
