Hearings

A committee is permitted to organise a hearing with experts, where this is considered essential to its work on a particular subject. Hearings can also be held jointly by two or more committees. Most committees organise regular hearings, as they allow them to hear from experts and hold discussions on the key issues.

23-01-2020 - EU Own Resources and Fiscal Policy harmonisation: untapped potential for synergies?

BUDG 22-01-2020 - 10:54
Own Resources

On 23 January, the BUDG committee will hold a public Hearing entitled "Own Resources and Fiscal Policy harmonisation: Untapped potential for synergies?", under the chairmanship of the two own-resources rapporteurs Mr José Manuel Fernandes (EPP, PT) and Ms Valérie Hayer (RE, FR).

The objective of the hearing is to examine the reform of the own resources system from an angle of possible fiscal harmonisation and overall efficiency of public finances in the EU. It will look beyond the own resources' primary function of financing the EU budget and also consider the added value of potential economic impact and policy co-benefits, thus aiming to provide timely input for the ongoing negotiations of the Multiannual Financial Framework 2021-2027.

Organised in two panels, the hearing will present a variety of speakers from the institutions as well as academia.

Location : József Antall building, 6Q2
