On 27 May 2020, BUDG Members adopted guidelines for the 2021 EU budget prepared by the general rapporteur for Section III of the EU budget, Pierre Larrouturou (S&D, FR). In the light of the unprecedented crisis facing the Union, the rapporteur believes that next year's EU budget should primarily focus on mitigating the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and supporting Member States' recovery, building on the European Green Deal.

On Wednesday 27 May 2020, Commissioner Hahn was invited to a BUDG meeting to present the Commission's revised proposals on the next Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) and own resources (OR) for 2021-2027, as well as a proposal for a COVID-related Recovery Plan. Parliament had repeatedly asked the Commission to revise its initial MFF/OR proposals of May 2018 to factor in the new political commitments by Commission President von der Leyen, such as the Green Deal and the tripling of Erasmus+.

BUDG Members adopted by means of a remote vote, on 27 May 2020, on a European Commission proposal to mobilise the EU Solidarity Fund for Portugal, Spain, Italy and Austria for a total amount of EUR 279 million. The EU assistance is to reimburse Member State authorities partially for costs incurred in the emergency and recovery operations addressing the damages caused by extreme weather events that all took place in autumn of 2019.

Parliament has set out its position on an ambitious coronavirus recovery plan to reboot the EU economy. MEPs are calling for citizens, the environment and digitalisation to be at the heart of the next long-term budget and the economic recovery.
