Coming up: Covid-19 recovery plan, contingency EU budget, tyres

During a plenary session starting Wednesday MEPs will look at how the EU budget can help Europe exit the Covid-19 crisis and will also vote on new tyre labelling rules.

Support for the economy

The economy has slowed down sharply due to the coronavirus outbreak and the EU is looking into ways to get it going again. The European Commission is expected to come up with a new proposal for a bigger EU budget for 2021-2027 to support the recovery. MEPs will discuss the issue with the Commission and the Council on Wednesday and will vote on a resolution later in the week.

Finding an agreement on a multibillion-euro financial plan takes time and it is becoming more and more likely that there will be a delay before the start of the implementation of the 2021-2027 budget. MEPs will vote on a resolution on Wednesday calling on the Commission to present a contingency budget proposal by 15 June to avoid disruption for farmers, companies and organisations counting on EU funds.
