The future scope and impact of EU policies will largely depend on the shape of the next MFF, which is now under discussion, on the basis of the European Commission's proposals submitted in June last year. An MFF-conference held in October 2011 was devoted to exchanging views with businesses, NGOs, independent analysts and other stakeholders. The aim of this conference is to deepen the discussion between the key actors of the European institutions. The European Parliament, the Danish Presidency of the Council, and the European Commission have decided to invite representatives of National Parliaments, the Committee of the Regions, the European Economic and Social Committee, and the Court of Auditors to exchange views on different aspects of the EU Budget: Resources and Expenditure. The entire conference will be web-streamed to allow for all interested parties to follow the debates.
The conference will start on Thursday morning at 9.30 with an opening session where the Presidents of the European Parliament, the Council, and the European Commission will share their views on the future of the MFF and Own Resources. Thereafter, the first working session will discuss the revenue side, and after the lunch, the second session the expenditure side of the EU Budget. The conference will conclude in the late afternoon.
Journalists can register on the spot starting at 9.00 a.m. Those accredited with the European Parliament are requested to show their accreditation. Other journalists are requested to present their national press accreditation or mission letter of their editor-in-chief.
Conference with national parliamentarians co-sponsored by the European Parliament, the Danish Presidency of the Council, the European Commission.
