The EU’s long term budget: an overview of the spending areas most in need of reform

A briefing which I gave to the Bundestag’s EU Affairs Committee on how to reform EU spending, awaiting the new multiannual EU budget 2021-2027 (MFF),can be found here.

I propose to impose drastic cuts to overall bureaucratic spending as well as to “direct payments” to agricultural landowners and to failing EU regional funds, which are vulnerable to corruption.
