EU funds for Poland shrinking
May 22, 2018   
Article's tools:

Poland could suffer a 10% decline in cohesion funds and a 15% in common agricultural policy funds in the new EU budget pool under the latest European Commission proposal, Investment and Development Minister Jerzy Kwiecinski told public radio Trojka.
"The EU budget for 2021-2027 presented by the EC is at the same level in relation to GDP as in the previous pool, but we calculated that cuts in the two programs most important for Poland, in cohesion policy and in CAP, may be deeper than was presented in the EC data presented on May 2," Kwiecinski said.
According to calculations, Poland could receive 10% less in cohesion funds rather than 7% less previously estimated and 15% less in CAP funds rather than earlier estimate of a 5% decline, Kwiecinski explained.
Deputy Finance Minister of EU Affairs Konrad Szymanski said on May 2 Poland is prepared to negotiate the next EU budget under the framework of the EU Commission's recently adopted framework, although it finds the proposal a "very imperfect document" leaving final agreement "distant."
The commission's EUR 1.28 trillion budget outline for the EU's next funding horizon, suffering from reduced revenues following Brexit, bears cuts to key programs utilized by Poland. The budget would additionally include a mechanism for tying payments to EU Rule of Law compliance decided by member vote.
