On Thursday morning, MEPs will debate on the special EU summit results with Council and Commission. On the same day, lawmakers will adopt a resolution on the Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF), an Own Resources system and a Recovery Plan for Europe.
The summit took place is Brussels on 17-21 July and it took more than 90 challenging hours of negotiation to reach an agreement on the next seven-year budget and the pandemic recovery fund.
Commenting on the outcome of the European Council meeting of Heads of States or Governments from 17-21 July in Brussels, the President of the European Parliament David Sassoli said on Tuesday that this is an unprecedented agreement between governments to revive the European economy. Parliament is ready to examine the European Council agreement carefully and constructively, with peoples' interests and revitalising the EU as its point of reference, he said.
We must now work to improve these instruments, we won't give up on a more ambitious MFF and clarity on new own resources, President Sassoli warned.
