Johan Van Overtveldt - BUDG Committee Johan Van Overtveldt - BUDG Committee
BUDG Committee Chair © European Union 2019 - EP
Welcome to the Committee on Budgets of the European Parliament! I am the Chair of this key committee, where we meet regularly to discuss, amend and prepare the adoption of the EU's annual and multiannual budgets. The EU budget provides funding for key policies and programmes.

Negotiating and adopting the annual EU budget is one of our core tasks. As Chair, I will apply all my energy and experience to ensuring that we are equipped with a future-oriented budget focusing on the common challenges our societies face.

On the basis of the work done during the previous term, we will also shape the EP position on the EU budget framework from 2021 to 2027. I am determined to help the EP play a key role in the ongoing negotiations, including on reform of the own-resources system.

We will also be tackling a number of other important issues, such as legislative proposals to deepen Economic and Monetary Union.

With my very best wishes,

Johan Van Overtveldt
