Communication presented on 13 June 2019 by the European Commission calling on the European Council to set out a roadmap to achieving an agreement on the EU's long-term budget by the autumn.
Ahead of the European Council meeting on 20-21 June 2019, the European Commission has called on leaders to make a push in advancing the negotiations on the EU's next long-term budget 2021-2027 so that an agreement can be reached by autumn. An agreement is within reach – but much work remains to be done while a lot is at stake.
In this Communication, the Commission looks at what has been achieved so far and identifies the main open issues that need to be addressed, paving the way for a swift agreement. Time is running out and delays to the future EU budget are costly. Not having an agreement in time would affect students, farmers and researchers, as well as everybody else who benefits from the EU budget.
The EU's current long-term budget 2014-2020 was adopted six months too late having negative consequences for many citizens, in the Member States and beyond. To avoid a similar scenario, the Commission has asked the European Council to set out a roadmap to achieving an agreement and to invite the Council to take the work forward as a matter of priority.
