Setting aside past criticism aimed at the EU institutions and common policies, especially migration, the two countries invited the European Commission to make a draft proposal for the next MFF that is “more courageous” than the previous one (2014-2020), approved in the aftermath of the crisis.

At a high-level conference hosted by the Commission, János Lazar, minister of the Hungarian prime minister’s office said that Budapest is “willing to increase” its contribution to the EU budget.

Oettinger: €60 billion Brexit bill ‘not totally wrong’

EXCLUSIVE / EU Budget Commissioner Günter Oettinger has told EURACTIV.com that the €60 billion bill floated as the price of Brexit is “not totally wrong”, just days before Britain triggers Article 50, the legal process to leave the bloc.


“We would like to be net contributors,” he repeated.

“We support the Commission’s intention to propose a MFF higher than 1% (of the EU’s GDP),” added Polish Secretary of State for European Affairs Konrad Szymanski.

He added that it would be “the right answer” in light of the financial hole that the UK will leave in the bloc’s coffers after its departure and the new goals Europe will face, including migration.
