Poland Discusses EU Budget

Budget Discussion

Budget Discussion

Poland has begun negotiations with the European Commission (EC) about the regulations concerning EU budget spending up until 2020. Poland is the largest transferee of EU funds and the first country to begin discussions with Brussels. Before Poland begins implementing any programmes it must have permission from the EC. “The conditions will be included in the so-called partnership agreement,” said Shirin Wheeler, spokeswomen of the Commission. She added that the document will assess the targets on which Poland would like to spend money as part of Europe 2020. “We will focus mainly on helping small- and medium-sized businesses, innovation, energy and transport,” said Wheeler. The negotiations will last until the summer. Poland will receive over €82 billion. Approximately €50 billion will be spent on larger national programmes. The rest will be allocated to regional programme managed by local governments.
