An ambitious Europe needs an ambitious budget
2020. február 22.
In Brussels on Friday Prime Minister Viktor Orbán made a statement after an EU summit on the EU multiannual financial framework for the period from 2021. Mr. Orbán said that it is unacceptable that four net contributors to the budget – Austria, the Netherlands, Denmark and Sweden – have rejected President of the European Council Charles Michel’s proposed contribution level of 1.074 per cent of gross national income (GNI), and want to continue paying 1 per cent of GNI into the EU budget. The Prime Minister said that an ambitious Europe needs an ambitious budget.
