Proposal presented on 5 June 2019 by the European Commission on the mobilisation the Flexibility Instrument in order to supplement the financing available in the general budget of the Union for the financial year 2020.

Further information:

Regulation (EU, Euratom) No 1311/2013 laying down the multiannual financial framework for the years 2014-2020 allows for the mobilisation of the Flexibility Instrument to finance clearly identified expenditure which could not be financed within the limits of the ceilings available for one or more headings of the multiannual financial framework.
