The EU budget is an investment budget – the EESC president reminds decision- makers meeting today at the EU Council

As the EU decision-makers meet today and tomorrow to discuss the way EU money will be spent over the next financial period, the EESC president renews his call to the Member States to decide on a robust EU budget, underpinned by an own-resource mechanism. The EU budget must support a strong and sustainable common agricultural policy (CAP) and a single cohesion policy, and must foster innovation and research which are drivers for bringing the EU back to sustainable growth and job creation. Economic and social stakeholders from the EESC say yes to trimming EU expenses, and no to trimming EU’s money for investment!
